March 19 1868 – Vincent walks out of boarding school

Vincent leaves Tilburg in a bit of disgrace, especially felt by his parents when he gets back home after a 7 hour walk to Zundert.  He will live at home for the next 16 months, in a discomforting family setting, before he will take a job in The Hague arranged by his uncle ‘Cent (Vincent), a partner at the powerful art firm of Goupil and Cie.

 


Leave your email address and Vincent will write you with a painting and his thoughts...

(Don’t worry, Vincent is busy painting and doesn’t send more than one a week!)
