Short of money Vincent van Gogh left Antwerp without paying his bills there. He moved in with his brother at Rue Victor Masse 25 in Paris. And in June 1886 they moved to Rue Lepic 54.

Today 137 years ago, on 28 February 1886,

Vincent van Gogh wrote to Theo from Paris:

"My dear Theo, Don’t be cross with me that I’ve come all of a sudden. I’ve thought about it so much and I think we’ll save time this way. Will be at the Louvre from midday, or earlier if you like. A reply, please, to let me know when you could come to the Salle Carrée."
