Finally, one right up my alley!! VanGogh, as is often the case with Artists and other creative types, suffered from mental illness and an addiction to Absinthe, also known as "the green fairy"(which is now banned in the US)and was quite fond of visiting prostitutes. Technically he didn't "lose" his ear, he cut off only the lobe of his left ear and gave it, in an envelope, to a prostitute named Rachel at a brothel he frequented, with the instructions to "guard this object carefully". An accurate diagnosis of Van Gogh's illness is still unavailable, but we do know a few things for sure: 1)he acquired syphillis from the prostitutes he visited and 2)there was a family history of mental illness. Recently, a new theory has evolved which states something to the effect that he may have had a congenital brain lesion that was exacerbated by his regular ingestion of absinthe. Hope that helps! Cheers! *That is true. He cut it off and brought it to a woman at a brothel. He was a very odd person. He once urinated in the fireplace of the queens castle for no particular reason. I added a link to the right. If you would like to read more about the ear you can find the information on that site. See link below.

Vincent Van Gogh had two ears but he cut one ear off and sent it to his girlfriend.
He cut (part of) it off with a razor. Some people believe Paul Gauguin did it.

No, that was Van Gogh.
In his room in Arles.
He was 35.
A self-portrait is when you paint a picture of yourself. So if there is a Van Gogh self-portrait, Van Gogh painted it.
No he did not. He only cut of the lobe of his ear.
No Mozart did not cut his ear it was Vincent Van Gogh
Part of his left ear.his left ear
The right ear of Vincent van Gogh is bandaged. Scroll down to related links and look at "Bandaged ear of Vincent van Gogh". At least it looks as if this is the case, but in fact he cut off the lower half of his left ear, and the self portrait is composed in a mirror.
It is believed that Vincent Van Gogh cut his own ear, though some believe that it might have been fellow artist, Paul Gauguin.
Van Gogh used a sharp razor blade to cut off a part of his ear.
Vincent van Gogh.
