Description

Protect your eyewear with this eyeglass case and matching lens cleaning cloth featuring Vincent van Gogh's Portrait of Postman Roulin.

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 "a head something like that of Socrates, almost no nose, a high forehead, bald pate, small grey eyes, high-colored full cheeks, a big beard, pepper and salt, big ears."

Hard shelled case with soft black lining.

Includes matching microfiber eyeglass cleaning cloth.
