Kee Vos-Stricker

Kee Vos-Stricker with her son Jan, ca.1879
Carte de visite

In 1881 Vincent van Gogh asked Kee to marry him.
She turned him down and replied that her past
and her future remained as one to her so that
she could never return his feelings.


  1. Those are informative links, Ray. There was a thorough documentary here not long ago, solely about Van Gogh's ear-cutting episode. The film was excellent.

    1. Yes, van Gogh's letters are fascinating. I saw a program on his ear-cutting problem, I think it was a BBC production and could have been the same one. It was very good.
