I would add one of these Gogh-Chairs or a pot with sunflowers to make shure

no no you lyer. it happened this way:

the year is 1976. Nurburgring, Germany. Talented F1-driver Van Gogh, who has witnessed a lot of problems concerning his bollide so far, can merely hold his vehicle on the track as he is on absinth drawing a self-portrait while racing for leadership.
At the so-called Bergwerk-virage he looses control over his car and crashes horribly, losing his helmet through the density of the crash.
Around 200 l of fuel caught fire and are horribly burning his face, causing him to lose one ear.
But showing no regret of ever participating in this dangerous sport, he later rejoins Ferrari to race again in the F1 and drew portraits of Willy Brandt and Werner Schulze-Erdel to name just two

this one is teriffic! I think everyone will understand this...Vincent and the story with his cut off ear are so very well known in public. And on top the little Lautrec....

And: Vincent is very easily to understand.

Maybe you're right. As I wrote: I got it, too.
I was just surprised it's ratings were "just" good and feared the others didn't understand it. Sorry.

surprise! 

Sorry, Ron,

I have to assume that the reader is on the same wavelength as me. It's been my maxim all my life, because I am certainly no brighter than those reading the cartoon. I think that having the Lautrec figure, small in stature and wearing (ro my mind) very recognizable clothes is sufficient. The slicing off of the ear is also a leap into what the idea is about.

In this one case, I will argue that I am right, and that there are sufficient hints in the artwork to get the idea across.

Very nice idea. But I think just calling that guy Vincent isn't enough to let the people understand you're referring to "Van Gough". I didn't get it either (a first).
Maybe integrating some of Van Gough's paintings would've helped to deliver the joke. Or some paint...
