Anguished Man

The Anguished Man

According to the tale, the artist who created The Anguished Man was a…lets just put it as a disturbed individual. Someone who mixed their own blood in with the oil when painting the piece and then committed suicide immediately after completing it, if you wish to know how disturbed. The Anguished Man, however, is more than that. It’s a beautifully horrific painting with an unproven backstory with, like everything on the internet these days, a god damned “cursed” theory.

Case Study: R. Budd Dwyer’s Suicide

Robert Budd Dwyer, known as R. Budd Dwyer, was an American Republican politician in Pennsylvania during the early 1970s to the late 1980s. From social studies teacher to senator representing the Pennsylvanian 50th District to the Treasurer of the state itself, he rose through the ranks of society’s politics fairly quickly. However, like many politicians, Mr. Dwyer was caught up in a terrible scandal. No, he didn’t delete 18 minutes of anything; and no, he didn’t sleep with an intern. In fact, he might have done absolutely nothing at all.
