Yes after Vincent van Gogh had shot himself he asked Dr Gachet to tell his brother Theo to come to Auvers-sûr-Oise. Theo was there with him when Vincent van Gogh died.

Today 132 years ago, on 27 July 1890,

Dr. Gachet wrote to Theo from Auvers-sûr-Oise:

"Today, Sunday, at nine o'clock in the evening I was sent for by your brother Vincent, who wanted to see me at once. I went there and found him very ill. He has wounded himself . . . it is your duty to come.”
