Description

Print of Vincent van Gogh's Portrait of Postman Roulin, 1888.

The original oil on canvas work is in the collection of the Detroit Institute of Arts.

In February 1888 Van Gogh moved to Arles, in the south of France, and continued to paint landscapes and portraits. Between late July 1888 and April 1889, he painted at least six portraits of Joseph-Etienne Roulin (1841–1903), a postman in Arles. Here, the artist concentrated on Roulin's head, which he described in a letter as "somewhat like Socrates, hardly any nose at all, a high forehead, bald crown, little gray eyes, bright red chubby cheeks, a big pepper-and-salt beard, large eyes."

Printed with archival-quality pigment inks on high-resolution, large-format twelve-color printers, the substrate is an acid-free and lignin-free 230gsm coated fine art paper. The bright white base color and smooth matte finish allows for the highest quality reproduction possible.

The image size is 9.75 x 7.5 inches on an 11 x 14 white ground, allowing it to fit into a standard 11 x 14 inch frame.
