Killing Vincent: The Man, The Myth, and The Murder

Posted on March 23rd, 2019

This book features various images of mine as well as some original research of mine related to pinfire cartridges. I was also able to supply Dr. Arenberg with hundreds of original-period 7mm pinfire cartridges to perform modern forensic testing to determine if the autopsy of Vincent van Gogh supports the narrative that van Gogh shot himself with a pinfire revolver.

“Dr. Irv Arenberg is a retired ear surgeon, author, editor of several medical books, and an innovator with multiple patents. In 1990 he entered the art history world when the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) published his special communication that posthumously diagnosed Vincent van Gogh with Meniere’s disease, an inner ear disorder – that overturned the accepted perception that the artist had epilepsy, and more correctly explained his misdiagnosed “attacks”.

Dr. Arenberg has just finalized his most recent work, Killing Vincent: The Man, The Myth, and The Murder, a non-fiction art history expose, which sheds new light on the mysterious death of Van Gogh. Killing Vincent sets out to prove through 21st century forensic methodology that in 1890, Van Gogh did not commit suicide as is historically advocated. However, as suggested by Time Magazine, the world-renowned artist was murdered.”
