The South London house where Vincent van Gogh lived from 1873-1874 was last week sold at auction for £565,000.

At the age of 20 Van Gogh arrived in London to start work at an art dealership in Southampton Street and from August of 1873 he lived at 87 Hackford Road.

The house was owned by Mrs Loyer who lived there with her daughter and it was Mrs Loyer's daughter who Van Gogh reputedly first fell in love with. There is also a sketch of Hackford Road which includes number 87, this was in the possession of Eugenie Loyer's granddaughter, Mrs Kathleen Maynard, and is now in the Van Gogh museum, Amsterdam.
