This photo provided by AuctionArt/Drouot on Wednesday April 3, 2019 shows the revolver it's believed was used by Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh to take his own life. Hailed by some as the art world's most famous weapon, Auction Art says it expects the gun to raise tens of thousands of euros. The auction will be held at the Drouot auction center June 19, 2019. The 7mm pocket revolver was discovered in the 1960s in fields in the northern French village of Auvers-sur-Oise, where Van Gogh is widely believed to have shot himself in the chest on July 27, 1890.
