Van Gogh in

Studio house

  1. 24 Nov. 1885
     - 28 Feb. 1886 1886

Vincent arrived in Antwerp in late November of 1885. He rented a room from the married Dutch couple Willem Henricus Brandel and Anna Wilhelmina Huberta.

Before his departure, Vincent did not expect to be able to afford a studio in Antwerp. But he managed to rent a small space adjacent to his room at the Brandels’ that he was able to use as one. Although it was not a full-sized workspace like the one he had had in Nuenen, it enabled Vincent to work at home in bad weather. He deemed it “tolerable”, partly because he had decorated the walls with various Japanese prints.
