     - 31 Dec 1874 1874

On the summer bank holiday in 1873, Vincent and a German lodger from the boarding house where he was staying visited the Dulwich Picture Gallery, a museum an hour and a half outside of London that kept (and still keeps) a famous collection of seventeenth-century art. He did not write about the paintings he saw there. After visiting the museum, the men walked to a village an hour away. Precisely a year later, on the following summer bank holiday, Vincent went to the gallery again with his sister Anna.
