Vincent van Gogh seems to have been full of energy and devotion.

Today 131 years ago, on 23 July 1890,

 Vincent wrote to his brother Theo from Auvers-sur-Oise:

"I’m applying myself to my canvases with all my attention, I’m trying to do as well as certain painters whom I’ve liked and admired a great deal.”

Shortly before he completed ‘Plain near Auvers’.

Plain near Auvers
Auvers-sür-Oise, July 1890
Oil on canvas
73.5 x 92 cm
Neue Pinakothek, Munich, Germany.

And only 4 days later Van Gogh got shot / shot himself and died two days later on 29 July 1890.
