Vincent Van Gogh and Sien’s baby

Vincent will welcome and bring up Sien’s new-born child. He will be moved by “that charming little boy, who keeps quiet in the workshop”. He will look after him with great care. He will stay with him while he’s drawing and serve as a model for him: “he’s the most joyful,, charming child you can imagine”.
After his splitting up with Sien, when he sees him again, he painfully wishes he had behaved differently: “The poor kid I took care of as if he had been mine is no longer who he used to be”.
