Childhood Namesake - Uncle Vincent van Gogh Famous People Visual Arts Nineteenth Century Life Biographies

The great artist was named after his father's brother - Vincent van Gogh - who lived between 1820 and 1888. This is a picture of that uncle.

He was actually the third Vincent in his family, since an older brother, who also had the name, died at birth - one year to the day before Vincent was born.
