Verlat Rooms
Antwerp, Belgium

  • December 14, 1885 - December 13, 1885

In an effort to see as much art as he could, Vincent visited various dealers and museums in Antwerp. Another way of coming into contact with art was to attend auctions. A public sale of classical and modern paintings took place in December 1885 at Salle Verlat. Vincent probably attended one of the viewing days, which were held on 13 and 14 December.
