Vincent van Gogh
(11 February 1789 - 7 May 1874)

Vincent's grandfather was also named Vincent van Gogh and, like his father, served as a pastor in various villages throughout Holland until his retirement in 1853 for health reasons.

Little is known about Vincent's relationship with his grandfather, but a brief remark in a letter to Theo suggests that Vincent found him to be somewhat cold and unpleasant.
