Van Gogh supposedly gave it to a prostitute named Rachel. He was found unconscious the next morning by a policeman and taken to hospital where Félix Rey, a young doctor still in training, treated him. The ear was delivered to the hospital but Rey did not attempt to reattach it as too much time had passed. (24 December 1888)
