Vincent’s younger brother died at age 33. Theo suffered from dementia paralytica, an infection of the brain and his health declined rapidly after Vincent's death.

Today 131 years ago, on 25 January 1891,

Theo van Gogh died.

This 1887 portrait by Vincent van Gogh, long thought to be a self-portrait, was reassessed in 2011 to be one of his brother Theo van Gogh.
