Van Gogh and Roulin lived on the same street in Arles and became close friends. Van Gogh painted over 20 portraits of Joseph and the Roulin family. Van Gogh wrote his brother, Theo about his excitement over this modern portrait, a picture that renders character not by the imitation of the sitter's appearance but through the independent, vivid life of color.
