After a period living in Paris and absorbing all the cultural and artistic stimulation he could, Vincent Van Gogh felt the need to live in a quieter town. He moved to Arles, where he founded an art studio he called Studio of the South. The Post-Impressionist wised to receive other modern artists to paint with him, especially Paul Gauguin. Unfortunately, the studio didn't last for very long, as Van Gogh and Gauguin had different views on art, leading to an awful argument.
Van Gogh produced a lot of artworks during this period, innovating in style and technique. Landscapes and still life were themes of easy access to him, resulting in a significant number of works of this kind. The artist wished to paint portraits of the people of Arles, but this was a more difficult task. During this period, he exchanged paintings for financial help from his brother, Theo, meaning he did not have money to pay for models and depending on people to voluntarily pose for him.
He made friends with the neighbors and was able to convince some people to pose for portraits. He produced many paintings of the Roulin family, as all members agreed to pose multiple times for the artist. Van Gogh was fascinated by the people in his new town and compared it to Japan, bringing him much joy. In this short period, he depicted many other citizens of different areas; including a poet, an old woman, and of course, a peasant.
This peasant was painted in Portrait Of Patience Escalier in 1888. Van Gogh had a special connection with the working society, influenced by Realist painters, such as Jean-FranÃ§ois Millet. The artist felt the need to dignify these people through his artwork and capture their true essence. This painting shows an old man clutching the end of his cane with his two hands. He wears a red shirt, a blue-green jacket, and a yellow hat. The bright orange background complements the color of his coat.
The old man's eyes are tired and look deep into the spectator's eyes. Like the Japanese woodcut prints, Van Gogh incorporates dark contours on the figures. The vibrant colors are also an influence from the Japanese art, as he wished to bring life to the subject.
