Custom designed for the Detroit Institute of Arts!
This square absorbent stone trivet has a wonderful full-color reproduction 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."
Each trivet has a fade resistant image and a cork backing to protect your table or counter from heat and scratches.
Dimensions: 6 x 6" x 5/16"
