Quick orthographical question.

Englighten me, o community? I'm writing a paper, and one of my sources is written by an Ans van Kemenade. According to English spelling rules, do I capitalise the "van" at the beginning of a sentence, since I do a lot of referring to the author by surname only?

Thank you in advance!

EDIT: Inquiry answered, thank you kindly!
