Both of the latter sources add a great deal to the study of a particular subject weavers that preoccupied Van Gogh during much of his stay in Nuenen. He said the Netherlands was so rife with social turmoil that it was in danger of turning into "something Belfast -like".

On July 29, he died from a self-inflicted bullet wound to the chest.

However, as Van Gogh Museum curator Louis Van Tilborgh points out, the authors provide no consistent evidence to support their theory. The recent retranslation by Leo Jansen, Hans Luijten, and Nienke Bakker, Vincent van Gogh: The Letters: The Complete Illustrated and Annotated Editionnot only provides more precise translations than the long-standard English translation by Vincent's sister-in-law, Johanna Bonger see belowit also provides an unparalleled wealth of illustrations and annotations that are both hugely helpful to the modern reader and a model of scholarship for the ages. As he was preparing a room in his Yellow House to accommodate Gauguin, who planned to visit Arles for an extended stay later in the year, Vincent was also working on his second series of the Sunflowers paintings. One of the van Gogh's early forays into landscape, a genre that would hold his focus throughout his career, View of the Sea at Scheveningen completed in Augustdepicts an active view of the strand near The Hague.

He became ill and run down by overwork, poor diet and excessive smoking. In Februaryfeeling worn out from life in Paris, Van Gogh left, having painted more than paintings during his two years there. Although official history maintains that Van Gogh committed a suicide, latest research reveals that Van Gogh's death might be caused by an accident. However, as Van Gogh Museum curator Louis Van Tilborgh points out, the authors provide no consistent evidence to support their theory.
