“I now have a room, as I’ve long been wishing…”
Vincent Van Gogh lived at 87 Hackford Road in Stockwell, London, for a year between August 1873 and 1874. He fell in love with British culture and was inspired by the art he saw in the UK. He also found happiness in his love for his landlady’s daughter, Eugenie Loyer, although this turned to sadness when his feelings were not reciprocated.
The Van Gogh House London is now being carefully renovated to become a venue for artist residencies and exhibition opportunities in collaboration with the nearby San Mei Gallery. The house will open its doors to the public in late Spring 2019 and we are now accepting bookings for our guided tours of 87 Hackford Road.
