Trips out to Eindhoven

Vincent made regular visits to Eindhoven, mostly to buy painting materials and also to visit his artist friends Willem van de Wakker, Anton Kerssemakers, Dimmen Gestel and Antoon Hermans. He often found subjects for his paintings and drawings on the way: the watermill at Kollen, the Martinus Church in Tongelre, the railway sheds at the old station in Eindhoven, the Catharinakerk church and the telegraph office.
