Van Gogh and Father Tanguy
Vincent felt affection
and friendship for father Tanguy, an old anarchist who ran a small shop
where he sold colours and exhibited the artists he admired.
Father Tanguy accepted the first Cézanne and every Impressionnist
went to his shop. It was there that Vincent met Bernard, Pissaro, art
critics and numerous artists. He would exhibit his paintings in the small
window and on the picture rails. .
If I manage to live long enough, I will be someone like father
