About the Van Gogh House

Post-Impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) came to London in 1873 aged 20 to work at the art dealership Goupil & Co. For a year between 1873-74, he lodged at 87 Hackford Road, Stockwell.

The Van Gogh House is now a Grade II listed building that has been renovated and conserved by the Wang family. Established as a site of creative production, 87 Hackford Road remains dedicated to preserving Van Gogh’s remarkable career while supporting the next generation of artists, writers, and designers.

Want to find out more and see the House for yourself? Then why not join us on 30 November? There are 20 free places available – first come, first served!
