1883-1885: The old cemetery, father Van Gogh’s grave
Nuenen: We now look out over meadows but Vincent would have seen the old tower of the 15th century church with its graveyard. Vincent loved this peasants’ churchyards with its old tower, he made no fewer than 35 drawings and paintings of it, even when it was being demolished in 1885. The foundations of the old tower are still there beneath the surface. Part of the old graveyard still remains. Vincent’s father is buried here.
