Celebrity's Relative
    (May 1, 1857-January 25, 1891)
    Born in Groot-Zundert, Netherlands
    Younger brother of artist Vincent Van Gogh
    Great-grandfather of murdered filmmaker and namesake Theo Van Gogh
    Successful art dealer who championed Impressionists paintings
    Chief financier of his brother's artistic pursuits
    Died in an Utrecht, Netherlands insane asylum at age 33 (six months after his brother's death)
    Subject of the 1990 Robert Altman film 'Vincent & Theo'
    During their lives, he was the more famed Van Gogh, but after their deaths, Vincent became the 'household name.'
    The love he had for his older brother bordered on unhealthy.
    Though he tried, he was not able to move or sell a single painting created by his brother.
    Speculation is Vincent shot himself to free him of financial burden, and one day after his brother's death, his mental health deteriorated.
    His death was attributed to complications of the final phase of syphilis.
    He was profoundly proud of his brother's talent.
    He convinced his employer to showcase the works of Claude Monet and Edgar Degas, jumpstarting their careers.
    He introduced his brother to some of the famed Impressionists of the time, including Paul Cezanne and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
    In 1888, he persuaded Paul Gauguin to join his brother in Arles, France, to collaborate together.
    He kept the letters his brother wrote him, proving invaluable to the art world as an introspect to the thoughts of a tortured yet brilliant soul.
