About February-March 1887, Vincent van Gogh organized an exhibition of Japanese prints from his own collection at Le Tambourin, the restaurant in Paris managed by Agostina Segatori. The prints are visible in the background of this portrait of Agostina. For some time Vincent had an affair with her. Later that year he wrote to his brother Theo: “I still feel affection for her and I hope she still feels some for me.” Image: Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890), In the café: Agostina Segatori in Le Tambourin, 1887, Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam (Vincent van Gogh Foundation)
Today is the birthday of Vincent Willem van Gogh (1890), son of Vincent’s brother Theo van Gogh and Jo Van Gogh-Bonger. He was the founder of the Van Gogh Museum. Theo wrote to Vincent on 31 January 1890: 'As we told you, we’ll name him after you, and I’m making the wish that he may be as determined and as courageous as you.' A few weeks later Vincent wrote: 'I started right away to make a painting for him, to hang in their bedroom. Large branches of white almond blossom against a blue sky.' That’s a great gift for a baby boy, don’t you think?
