Vincent goes for work to the art trade Goupil in London.
Vincent is transferred to the London branch. Daily contact with
works of art rekindles his appreciation of paintings and drawings.
In the city's museums and galleries, he becomes a avid admirer of
the works of Jean-Fraincois Millet and Jules Breton. His religious
fervor increases to the detriment of his work. In the summer he
falls unsuccessfully in love with Eugenia, the daughter of Mrs.
Ursula Loyer, who runs the boarding house where he is staying. This
was the first of several terrible attempts to find happiness with a
woman. She was not attracted to him and was engaged. He is rejected
and extremely depressed. Theo accepts a position at Goupil's in
January, working in Brussels before transferring to The Hague in
November of this year.
