Van Gogh chose surrealism over the photorealistic. Many, many years later,
once photography made certain art rather pointless [1], Van Gogh became the
star of the show, to this date.

Who got the last laugh? Sadly, Van Gogh was not there to *hear* (pun
intended) it, neither is he here to see it.

Microsoft: the deaf monopolist.

Best wishes,
