The impoverished Vincent van Gogh wanted to fulfill a dream in Arles: a Studio of the South where artists would live and work together. But no one wanted to help him. Only Paul Gauguin agreed after long hesitation. Van Gogh's brother Theo paid Gauguin's travel expenses and a monthly allowance. Vincent felt deeply in Theo's debt. At the same time, he wanted to impress Gauguin. Therefore, in a short time, like a madman, he painted numerous pictures, including the famous sunflower paintings. Before Gauguin's arrival, van Gogh is said to have been very exhausted. None of it helped: he and Gauguin had numerous conflicts - one of which ended with van Gogh losing an ear. Exactly how this happened has not been clarified with certainty to this day.

This little anecdote shows very well the tragedy in van Gogh's life. Luck was never on his side, but he also stood in his own way. This sketchbook cover symbolizes this reading in a brilliant way: Vincat van Gogh somehow made it into his own painting Twelve Sunflowers in a Vase, fiddling with one of the sunflowers. Now it's Eleven Sunflowers in a Vase. And has van Gogh already lost his right ear, or is it just covered up?
