Inglorious Ascent

  • The DawnVincent Van Gogh was born in Zundert in the Netherlands in 1853, and given the same name as his still-born brother from exactly one year earlier. He was born to a well-to-do family, his father a pastor and the spiritual leader of the community. Vincent was a strange, eccentric boy, ill tempered, and prone to extreme fits of anger. He often went on long walks alone in the fields. He described his childhood as simply ‘loneliness’ – ‘gloomy and cold and sterile’.
