An exhibition of Vincent Van Gogh's work at Tate Britain will show how much the artist was influenced by London.
Van Gogh lived in London as a young man, between 1873 and 1876.
Curators said he was "daunted to be in the biggest and most modern city in the world, completely on his own".
He worked as a trainee art dealer while living in Brixton and was relatively affluent but became "radical" and "disillusioned with his job".
During his time living in London, Van Gogh "enjoyed a bit of gardening", had a Dickens-style Christmas, and liked to sketch the River Thames at dusk - but also fell in love and came face-to-face with poverty.
He had not started painting but "roamed the streets of London" and was inspired by British writers Shakespeare, Christina Rossetti and Charles Dickens.
Curators said that the "Van Gogh we know was being born in London" - the artist, who famously cut off his own ear, became "much more melancholy and serious".
Highlights of the exhibition include L'Arlesienne (1890), Starry Night Over The Rhone (1888), Shoes (1886), from the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, and Sunflowers (1888).
In the final months before he died, after shooting himself, Van Gogh painted Prisoners Exercising (1890), his only surviving image of London, from a print of Newgate prison.
The Ey Exhibition: Van Gogh And Britain will run at Tate Britain from March 27 to August 11.
