Personal Quote:

Perhaps death is not the hardest thing in a painter's life. . . Looking at the stars always makes me dream, as simply as I dream over the black dots representing towns and villages on a map.

Suffered from depression which led to him committing suicide. His last painting was of a man who was sitting down with his head in his hands as if he were depressed. See more »
