Van Gogh in

Blommers’ sudio

  1. 24 Mrt. 1882
     - 11 Sep. 1883

The artist Bernardus Johannes Blommers (1845–1914) visited Vincent at his Schenkweg studio in April 1882 to discuss the possibility of Vincent giving a lecture at the artists’ society Pulchri Studio on his collection of magazine illustrations from The Graphic. The lecture never took place, however. Vincent also went to see Blommers in his studio at Spui 58. It is likely that he also visited Blommers when the latter lived at Van Stolkweg 17, given that Vincent’s friend Théophile de Bock (1851–1904), with whom he stored his painting supplies when working in Scheveningen, lived across the street at no. 20. Vincent never wrote about any such visits, however, so it is unclear whether they actually took place.
