A New Book Examines The Complicated Mental Illness of Vincent Van Gogh
A new book by Todd Richardson M.D., The Medical Mystery of Vincent Van Gogh, examines the collective illnesses of the artist and is written to be interesting to anyone in the fields of medicine, art, or those intrigued by the man himself.
During his life, Vincent Van Gogh was mocked and ridiculed because of a poor understanding of his diseases, but he was a man of superior intelligence with unique understanding of color and form such as the world has never known. His paintings now sell for higher prices than any other artist. His painted images have been copied and repeated more than any other work in history.
Over the past 100 years, approximately 40 different diagnoses have been attributed to Vincent Van Gogh. Diseases such as Bipolar Disorder and Meniere’s Syndrome which share symptoms have confused physicians for over a century. When you consider the vague effects of Overuse Syndrome and Anxiety Neurosis, it’s no wonder that Van Gogh has been assigned so many different diseases. Upon closer scrutiny and review, Doctor Richardson has found several other diseases entities which have largely gone unnoticed.
The Medical Mystery of Vincent Van Gogh is now available through Amazon.com. It can be wirelessly delivered to your Ipad, Kindle, Nexus, computer, or other tablet device.
