The Go To Girls Blog Loves Vincent Van Gogh

While we were in London we found out there was a Van Gogh exhibition on at Tate Britain.

Come back for the full version of this trip.

Thanks for reading.

Loving being me.

  1. Van Gogh was unlucky in love. In the early 18, when he was starting out as an artist and living with his parents in the Netherlands, he fell in love with his widowed cousin, Kee Vos-Stricker. Although she rejected him, he didn t give up easily, which led to tensions with his parents, who also weren t thrilled with his new choice of career. Next, he became involved with a woman named Sien Hoornik, a former prostitute who served as his model and also had young children. Van Gogh s family disapproved of Hoornik and the relationship eventually ended. Later, while still residing in the Netherlands, he had a relationship with an older neighbor, Margot Begemann, who attempted to kill herself because her family opposed the match. In Paris, van Gogh got involved with an artist s model and caf owner named Agostina Segatori, but that romance fell apart as well.
