Fun fact: almost every person who has English as their first language will mispronounce the first word, regardless how hard they try on the second one.
how is it pronounced?
great work. I knew you’d deliver
so in phonetic english it would be Vincent Fon Hhhhocgh. Reckon I might give that a bash next time he comes up in conversation
Can you add (not dead) to the thread title please?
Van Goch, like the Scottish pronunciation of ‘loch’.
it’s more like ‘vohn’ or ‘von’, right?
haha I was right.

This is very informative and all that, but there is absolutely no way i will be saying it like that when speaking about the artist in english.
(Fwiw i think people should make a good faith effort to pronounce the names of people they encounter, but I don’t extend that to long-dead public figures, and personally I use the anglicised pronunciation of my name in the uk to avoid having to have a conversation about it every time)
Same for me. Life is too short.
