Vincent Van Gogh Felt Deeply; Felt Tenderly
Examining Vincent van Gogh’s life and his relationship with self-injury through an existential-phenomenological perspective. This paper uses quotes from the letters sent by Vincent to his brother Theo, along with the concepts given by Dr. R.D Laing like ontological insecurity, engulfment, unembodiment, depersonalization, and petrification, to give a possible insight into Vincent van Gogh’s life.
