In his "Starry Night" painting...

I wonder if he was extremely light sensitive. I know he had terrible, terrible migraines.

One expects that he probably just wasn't as plagued by light pollution as the modern world is.

Possibly... there's a way to measure if the lumens are high enough (lumens being a measurement of the amount of light). I'll see if I can find out...

btw - I love that user icon. I'm totally stealing it. Is that from Nephilim?

The icon is a representation of the solar cycle for the world of the Dark Crystal. While I have the book with the full diagram, I stole this one from someone else on lj.

He had digoxin toxicity. Or so the med school rumor goes.

He did have documented migraines too... that's part of what was behind his horrible mood swings. There's a neat movie about him where Kirk Douglas does really bad overacting of a migraine attack.
