Vincent van Gogh's : Painting Signature
Vincent Gogh signed his paintings simply "Vincent", not "Vincent van Gogh" nor "Van Gogh". In a letter to his brother Theo, written on 24 March 1888, he stipulated that "in the future my name ought to be put in the catalogue as I sign it on the canvas, namely Vincent and not Van Gogh, for the simple reason that they do not know how to pronounce the latter name here." ("Here" being Arles, in the south of France.)
