Theo Van Gogh, great-grandson of Vincent's brother, has been murdered in the Netherlands for his own artistic expression.

Here's a good article about his great-grandfather's contribution to the Expressionist movement, even though the first Theo never lifted a brush:

Cheaps Joe's "Brushes for Vincent" program follows in Theo's example, providing art supplies to the needy in our time.

I have sent a check to "Brushes for Vincent" in honor of the murdered Theo Van Gogh.
