Anyone of you art experts wanting to dispute these claim that I'm making feel free to impress me
You can do that by jumping on board with your comments below. Try and keep it clean, neat and tidy, for the Vincent van Gogh experts at their foundation may just want to reconsider who the artist really was who painted this portrait. Just think of all the money they could make by bringing in the masses to see a Vincent van Gogh portrait of the long lost, but not forgotten "Jack The Ripper". They could actually do this by re-attributing this work of art back to the rightful artist Vincent van Gogh. It would not be all that difficult for them to do, since the portrait has always been known to be of his works of art in the first place.
By the experts re-attributing back to Vincent, it should make it one sought after little portrait for all to see in real life. They would be able to see what Jack really did looked like in his day and the fear that he must have put into the mind and souls of his victims as he proceeded to do his little job on them. They would perhaps feel the anguish of his previous victims as he was in the process of carving them up. The museums more than likely would haft to pay big dollars for this main attraction it would cause in bringing in new art patrons. They would get a first hand look at one of the worlds most sought after unknown criminals in history, what he looked like and painted straight from the mind and soul of one great artist.
Hasn't this portrait always been called Vincent's portrait of a " Unknown Man", before it was just taken away from his oeuvre for no other reason than just saying it was not done in his style or using his techniques? Maybe possibly for just not knowing who the hell he was. Believe me, this is all they know about it, and it is now said that it was painted by some unknown talented artist there in Paris around that time period other than Vincent that had failed to sign it.
This portrait above and just below has been a van Gogh before anybody really cared who in the hell painted it other than its owner. This portrait of this Un-known man was painted in 1886-7 in Paris France when Vincent was living there. Vincent never really got along with Theo his brother all that much when living with him being his roommate. So because of that, Vincent made himself scarce while finding himself work to pay for his own lodging. When he was in the presence of Theo, it seemed to Vincent he would always make his brother Theo prickle and tingle just being around him. Vincent felt better about staying away at a little distance so to not cause these problems.
When Vincent was in Paris, since Theo wasn't selling any of Vincent's works, Vincent would sell some, trade others, not signed of course, to help with his expenses. If he had signed them he knew he could loose his brothers help from their earlier agreement that they made with each other at the old mill. This was made before Vincent supposedly becoming an artist. His bother Theo an art dealer agreed to manage him and his works he'd produce at the beginning of his artistic career to the end. This is the reason why Vincent would only send his best works of art to his brother. Vincent would remind Theo almost always of their agreement by the ending of his letters,... "with a hand shake, your brother Vincent".
The Un-Known Man supposedly not by Vincent
This guy to the right is an age reduction enhancement of another guy who died in an American jail in the 1920's claiming he was Jack the Ripper.
I don't really think I haft to elaborate all that much about who I know this guy happened to be on the left that Vincent painted in his portrait, while being Just maybe an acquaintance of his and I'd guess also of Vincent's lady model that lived close to him in her own apartment while Vincent was working at a Photography studio and his model worked at the Tambourine. Vincent was actually having a hard time in making ends meet, until finding this job working for a photographer in his studio their in Paris. I'm not really absolutely sure on Vincent's and his bothers Theo's situations on their agreements, but I do know it was awfully strained at times and there was not much Vincent was producing at that time for his brother Theo the art dealer and handler and not really all that much support coming to Vincent from Theo.
This first picture above on the left is a composite drawing of Jack the ripper by a supposed eye witness there in London at the time of one of the first murders. The other is an age reduction of old man who had died and is now a good suspect in investigators minds that think he could have been Jack the Ripper. It tell of how he had came to the USA and supposedly committed the same kind of murders. You be the judge of that, but I like my own theory better, and like I say, it looks rather doubtful that it could be Jack the Ripper who they think he is. In their doing that job on the age reduction they think he is a dead ringer for the other drawing. The hats Resemble each other a bit but you can't sway a jury with just that. Well anyway give Vincent's Un-known man a hair cut and shave his chin, while putting that hat on his head, and bingo, who do you have,... good o'l Jack The Ripper.
This drawing was on the wall of Vincent van Gogh's and in this Chalk drawing of Vincent's that is presumed to have been by this lady artist the drawing represents,... Jeanne Donnadieu. I myself believe it to be Vincent's Live model he used himself for the other chalk drawings of her made by Vincent himself.
There is a large full photograph of her semi-nude more than likely taken by Vincent van Gogh when he work at the photography studio there in Paris. This was one of Vincent's other jobs that he had taken on and was painting and enhancing large wedding photos of their newly married customers or wedding portraits on tin or digerati type large photos pictures. Vincent did make money on the side, despite what is said, but we all can imagine where the money went,.... more than likely for more painting supplies and extra curricular activities.
Anyway getting back to Jack The Ripper killings of these prostitutes, the removal of body parts and the braking of bones, surely must have helped in hiding the identity of one of the murdered women. Let's just assume it was to shock the viewers to where some of the people seeing this terrible and disgraceful act that knew her or him would not put it together, and she wouldn't be recognizable to any that knew them. The gals face was mutilated beyond recognition and dissected apart pretty well while being positioned in some kind of a pose to where most would not even be able to look at her to recognize her if they even knew who she was. Let us just assume this could have possibly been Jeanne Donnadieu, or even a friend of hers. If it were Jeanne, the thought to be artist of the two portraits of her along with the one of Vincent, and then her just dis-appeared off the face of the earth, just how could that be?. She might have ran away from Jack back in Paris for some reason or another, maybe just to save her own life. Again let us assume her going back home to London to get away from him by taking back her real name in stead of her stage name used there in Paris. We all know that women in that line of work hardly ever used their real names.
This chalk portrait is the man that was in Jeanne's life cause you can see the same portrait above in the shoulder lace of one of her portraits done by Vincent. This chalk portrait that's from my collection came from a portfolio from a European eBay seller of an un-known artist. I had bought these works of art on eBay some time back. I would only have bought these work only knowing them to be of Vincent's own hand and of his work of art.
Some would say that Vincent could have been Jack the Ripper but the time line just doesn't fit, but that ain't saying he didn't know who he was and took it with him to his grave.
As most know by reading of these crimes and of the killing of these professional women prostitutes, they were not attack sexually to where they were raped, but only killed for being prostitutes. It was kind of like a vendetta of sort, say like for maybe contracting an incurable disease at the time like syphilis, and then putting the blame only on the women of the profession. Anyway this conclusion would surly explain why and where this lost little lassie had disappeared to, never to be heard of or seen again. I'd say personally that Agostina Sagetory could have definitely been responsible for the sale and of these works of art left at her establishment of the Tambourine and later being entered into these art salon where they were entered in and sold.
This happens to be a Portrait of Agostina Segatory the Italian Girl-friend of Vincent's at the time of this portrait being painted by Vincent van Gogh.
I do believe Vincent had talked a bit about the financial difficulties Agostina was having with the Tamborrine Bar & Cafe. Let's us continue to assume that when possibly losing the cafe, she herself had a hand in selling these works of art left by Vincent and supposedly Jeanne the artist who flatly disappeared. Just maybe Agostina was responsible for entering them into art exhibits as them belonging to hers and representing the lady artist she probably knew who went back home to london to get away from the excitement of the Paris night life. Her knowing this all the time who had painted them, Vincent and Donnadieu out of the was pretty much gave that Italian crook Agostina free rein. Her painted portrait by Vincent is signed Gost or Yost was more than likely one of Vincent's trick signatures of Gost out of the name of Agostina for short. All these works were more than likely entered in salon art shows and sold as amateur art of these artists salons and art shows. Vincent did say say he lost a lot of good art work in Paris when he left on a train for Arles, France
Signed "Ago Agostin", and what does that signature tell us? The mulberry trees, where Vincent and Agostina took a boat ride for a secluded picnic. Well, it is all right there in front of us, low and behold there they happen to be, under that mulberry tree or should I say next to the trunk of the tree embracing one another with the boat tied up in the distance behind them.
