It would be interesting to know that a variety of versions concerning circumstances under which Van Gogh's ear has been cut off is supplemented by one more theory. 
     In the opinion of English historians, Van Gogh's ear was cut off with the sword of his friend, Paul Gauguin, during one of the drunk parties, when they were fencing in jest. Frightened with the blood, Paul Gauguin ran away, and Van Gogh didn't see fit to explain to anybody the real cause of the incident.
      Afterwards Van Gogh wrote in one of the letters to Paul Gauguin something like the following: "… if you keep quiet I will also keep quit…" 
    Who knows Anyway, Mike Tyson was yet unborn at that time…
