It is important to mention the relation between Vincent's death and his relationship with the Gachet's family. In the last few years have being discovered the posibility of a murder instead of a suicide. First of all, we need to say that Vincent was getting much better in auvers, everything was going forwars, he sold his first painting (The Red Vine), also got a very positive review in a Paris art paper, by the art critic Albert Aurier. So why killing himself then?
He didn't owned a gun, either!
Ten years ago the Gachet family were implicated in ....what? A murder...
We doin't know for sure what really happended.
When Vincent was wounded , Dr. Gachet only cleaned the wounds and let him smoke his pipe, waiting for the moment he died. He called Theo, brother of Vincent Van Gogh, and they waited until Vincent died. But, the good doctor did not do anything else to help him.
