Good content but the narrator's tone of voice was jarring and pompous.

An interesting look at unanswered questions about the artist, specifically about the night he went and sliced off his ear during a mental breakdown. An art historian with a personal interest in the subject examines the story of the artist, the circumstances of the act, and the place where it happened. Informative, particularly if you've got an interest in his life.
