Portrait of Joseph Roulin

Joseph Roulin was the postmaster at the station in Arles. Because Van Gogh frequently send paintings to his brother Théo in the Netherlands, he and Joseph became close friends. Vincent describes him as a man who is not bitter, not melancholy, not perfect, not happy and also not always perfectly honest. But he is such a good fellow, so wise, so feeling and so faithful. Vincent painted six portraits of Joseph (Between August 1888 and April 1889), three of which had flowers in the background. In this particular portrait he painted summer flowers.

The poppies, cornflowers, daisies and roses are painted fairly precisely, in contrast to Joseph's face and full beard with the stylized curls. Here, Van Gogh has applied the paint with a quick, flowing brushstroke. Van Gogh, always in need of models, was very happy that Joseph, his wife, and his three children were willing to model for him. He painted more than twenty portraits of the Roulin family.<
