The Vincent van GoghHuis in Zundert
Vincent’s early years
Vincent van Gogh was born on 30 March 1853 in Zundert, as the son of a minister. Did you know that he was actually the second 'Vincent van Gogh' in the family? He was named after his deceased older brother. He grew up as a Protestant child in a predominantly Catholic community. His father preached in a church around the corner that can still be visited today.
Van Gogh developed a great love for nature in his youth and spent hours exploring the area around Zundert. The Brabant landscape and peasant life would later be major sources of inspiration for Vincent's paintings.
