The Mystery of Van Gogh's Ear
Jeremy Paxman joins forces with `art sleuth' Bernadette Murphy in a bid to solve one of the greatest and bloodiest mysteries of the art world - why did Vincent Van Gogh take a blade to his own ear in December, 1888? The pair set out to discover why the Dutch post-impressionist chose to mutilate himself, and also to identify the unknown girl to whom he is reported to have given is severed ear. Their quest takes them from Vincent's former home in the south of France to the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, and along the way, they seek to determine the causes of the painter's debilitating mental turmoil. The answers they are looking for, however, might not lie in Europe. Instead, a library in California may hold crucial evidence that - if verified - could cause an art world sensation
