Suggestions include epilepsy and bipolar disorderpossibly exacerbated by excessive absinthe drinking, heavy smoking and venereal disease. Symptoms were varied, but in their most severe manifestations they The Shades Of Eternitys Chamber attacks of confusion and unconsciousness followed by periods of stupor and incoherence during which he was generally unable to paint, draw, or even to write letters.
On February 22,Van Gogh suffered his most severe relapse, an episode Jan Hulsker called the longest and saddest of his life, and one which lasted some nine weeks through to late April. It is in these drawings and paintings that Hulsker sees unmistakable signs of his mental collapse, otherwise rare in his work.
