Famous Dutch London StrangerVincent Van Gogh was a very famous Dutch artist who only lived a short 37 years in the 19th century but who made an ever lasting impact on the art world. In 1873 Vincent moved to 87 Hackford Rd, Brixton and worked for an Art Dealer, Goupil and Cie in London. He later worked as a supply teacher for a school in Ramsgate, Kent and Isleworth, Middlesex. A troubled soul during life, Van Gogh's work was not really recognised until after he was found shot dead in 1890, believed to be self inflicted although no gun was ever found near his body. He also famously cut off his ear and sent it to a prostitue called Rachel and of course he is an acclaimed artist.
