Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh has gone down in history as a loner but a new exhibition that launched Saturday aims to dismantle this myth by highlighting the artist's most intimate circle.

The legend of van Gogh tells the story of an artist who lived as an eccentric loner, marginalized and unappreciated, and who died alone and tormented after being shot with his gun.
