Hester Gersonius asks if the filmmaker Theo van Gogh is related to Vincent. Read on for the answer.
The filmmaker Theo van Gogh (1957-2004) is indeed related to Vincent. Here’s the low-down: Theo van Gogh, Vincent’s brother, married Jo van Gogh-Bonger.
Their son, Vincent Willem van Gogh (founder of the Van Gogh Museum, aka ‘The Engineer’), married Josina Wibaut. She gave birth to a daughter and three sons. One of these sons, Johan, married Anna Vonhoff and fathered two daughters and one son: Theodoor, later a filmmaker – and a great-grandson of Vincent’s brother.
