The Van Gogh Sisters (Big Weekend)

October 1 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free
In this thoughtful and unprecedented biographical history, Willem-Jan Verlinden delves into previously unpublished correspondence in the Van Gogh family archives to bring Vincent’s three sisters out from their brother’s shadow, poignantly portraying their dreams, disappointments and grief.

The previously neglected voices of his sisters Anna, Lies and Willemien, with whom Vincent had intimate and sometimes turbulent relationships, are now uncovered.

Willem-Jan Verlinden was born in the Netherlands and studied art history in Leiden. He has worked for a number of museums and art foundations and is the co-author, with Kristine Gorenhart, of “How I Love London: Walking Through Vincent Van Gogh’s London”.

All Big Weekend Tercentenary Hall events will be live streamed on the Dublin City Libraries YouTube page. No booking required for online attendees.
