discover the places where Vincent lived and worked

Dulwich Picture Gallery
London, England

  • August 4, 1873
  • January 1, 1874 - December 31, 1874

On the summer bank holiday in 1873, Vincent and a German lodger from the boarding house where he was staying visited the Dulwich Picture Gallery, a museum an hour and a half outside London that had a famous collection of seventeenth-century art. He did not write about the paintings he saw there. After visiting the museum, the men walked to a village an hour away. Precisely a year later, on the following summer bank holiday, Vincent went to the gallery again with his sister Anna.
