The Drouot auction house in Paris has made a remarkable sales day when we left behind.
The pistol, which was believed to have been killed by Dutch painter Vincent Van Gogh, was put on sale at auction. The rusty and unusable weapon was sold for € 162,000,500. An anonymous weapon, a 7mm pocket bought by a private collector, was found on the field near the French city of Auvers-sur-Oise, where Van Gogh killed himself in the 1960s. It has been reported that Van Gogh quoted his weapon from a guard and committed suicide with this weapon. Another scenario of death was that two children played with weapons, accidentally shot and Van Gogh was injured and later killed. Vincent Van Gogh died on July 29, 1890.
