The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS -

A bust of van Gogh will be in­stalled next Fri­day af­ter­noon in the South Lon­don street named af­ter the artist, Van Gogh Walk in Brix­ton.

It has been sculpted by Jewish artist An­thony Pad­gett (above) and is part of his “A Year of Vin­cent” project, which will see van Gogh busts placed at other sites in the UK and Europe.

Van Gogh lived in the ad­ja­cent street in South Lon­don when he worked as an art dealer in Covent Gar­den.
