Postman Joseph Roulin” painted by Vincent van Gogh in 1888. Roulin was one of Van Gogh’s closest friends and favorite sitters. While painting this portrait, Van Gogh wrote to his brother, “I am now at work with another model…very like Socrates…A more interesting man than many people.”
In one of my early posts about chair paintings I featured the Van Gogh Chair. The image ranks number 1 in a search engines and creates some traffic here.
The Gaugin style chair by Van Gogh featured here is a result from the close collaboration both painters had during several years. Van Gogh wanted to demonstrate he was able to paint in the style of Gaugin.
