Join author and art historian Willem-Jan Verlinden and Creative Director of Van Gogh House Livia Wang on a walking tour and discussion of Vincent van Gogh's formative time in London.

The talk will expand on Van Gogh’s time living at 87 Hackford Road with his sister Anna, as well as the influence of the city's booming print industry on the artist. Van Gogh was deeply fascinated by newspapers 'The London Illustrated News' and 'The Graphic', referring and collecting them throughout his life.

The event includes a short walk and visit to the neighbouring Type Archive, a collection that spans 600 years of printing history. The archive holds vast collections of the material and equipment needed to manufacture metal and wooden type for letterpress printing. The Type Archive celebrates creative and engineering ingenuity.

This event is part of 'New Dutch Writing', and supported by the Dutch Foundation for Literature.
