About Cornelis (Cor) Marinus van Gogh

buried Vak A1, nr. 303, Gogh, Cornelis Marinus van, 84, 1908-09-07

Cornelis "Cor" Marinus van Gogh worked as a bookkeeper in his brother Hein’s bookshop and his brother Vincent’s art gallery. In 1849 he set up on his own as a bookseller and art dealer in Amsterdam, and moved into premises in Leidsestraat in 1853. The bookshop and gallery moved to Keizersgracht 453 in 1871. His young nephew Vincent visited the shop in 1877-1878, getting to know books and art. For a while in 1882 it seemed as though Uncle Cor saw some promise in Vincent’s drawings, for he commissioned two series of cityscapes of The Hague from him, but nothing further came of it.
