Van Gogh Museum: Amsterdam

I first heard of Van Gogh when I started my banking career with the Dutch bank ABN AMRO over a decade ago. Van Gogh Preferred Banking was a select range of services offered by the bank to rich and privilidged. It took me a few attempts to get the pronunciation right to ensure that I do not make a fool of myself in front of my Dutch counterparts. Some fellow bankers raved of Van Gogh's work while others called him the 'tortured painter', without an ear. My naive mind assumed he was deaf. Little did I know that he had cut off his own ear on account of a psychotic episode!
