Van Gogh – an artist with a mysterious look and a tragic fate
We will remind, earlier the portal Znayu reported that in London discovered a stash of Vah Gogh tried himself in the role of the teacher.
Martin Bailey, a van Gogh expert and author of “the Starry night: van Gogh in the Asylum”, told CNN that the artist lived in a hotel between 1873 and 1874 years, working as an assistant in the gallery Goupil in Covent garden. Then the artist was 20 years old.
As the expert noted, it is an impressive age for all, so his time in London had upon him a profound influence.
“What was important in London is the fact that he worked in an art gallery, and it helped him to get acquainted with painting. If it never worked in the gallery, I think it unlikely that he ever would become an artist.”
Bailey said that the items that have the strongest connection with the time of van Gogh in London, are a series of insurance policies in the name Ursula Loyer, who was the owner of the house.
Recall why van Gogh cut off his ear.
