These icons tell a sad story of an artist! Sad but often true for even the most accomplished famous artists. Most artists achieve only the joy of making the art and never experience the joy of being famous for their art.
There is a popular saying for this. "The candle that burns twice as hot, burns half as long." An artist sees the world in greater detail and with more emotion than some others and in short, they pay a price by seeing stuff for less time.
