About Vincent van Gogh

Vincent van Gogh, "Uncle Cent", was a successful art dealer and uncle of painter Vincent van Gogh. In 1858, he became a partner in the firm of Goupil & Cie and moved to Paris. There was a very lucrative market in art reproductions, and he persuaded Goupil to start publishing large engravings after paintings, which proved extremely popular. In 1871 he was forced to retire because of ill health, but he remained a sleeping partner from 1872 to 1878. He and his wife Cornelia Carbentus, a sister of Anna van Gogh-Carbentus, moved to a mansion in Princenhage, near Breda. He had a large art collection, chiefly comprising works of the Barbizon and Hague schools.
