The Mysterious Vincent

Who the heck is this?

You know who
Adding to the mystery the old boy gathers around himself, is the apparent lack of a recognized photo of VVG.

The one above is dated circa the 1880s, and originates out of the Netherlands. The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam rejects it's authenticity, as it's provenance is sketchy, at best. And, they get at least one kook a day showing up with a long-lost photo of the keener.

You be the judge.
