Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. L'Arl sienne, L'Arl sienne (Madame Ginoux), or Portrait of Madame Ginoux is the title given to a group of six similar paintings by Vincent van Gogh, painted in Arles, November 1888 (or later), and in Auvers, February 1890. L'Arl sienne is pronounced 'lar lay zyen'; it means literally "the woman from Arles." The subject, Marie Jullian (or Julien), was born in Arles June 8, 1848 and died there August 2, 1911. She married Joseph-Michel Ginoux in 1866 and together they ran the Caf de la Gare, 30 Place Lamartine, where Van Gogh lodged from May to mid September 1888. He had the Yellow House in Arles furnished to settle there. Evidently until this time, Van Gogh's relations to M. and Mme. Ginoux had remained more or less commercial, but Gauguin's arrival in Arles altered the situation. His courtship charmed the lady, then about 40 years of age, and in the first few days of November 1888 (November 1st, or more probably November 2nd) Madame Ginoux agreed to have a portrait session for Paul Gauguin, and his friend Van Gogh. Within an hour, Gauguin produced a charcoal drawing, while Vincent produced a full-scale painting.show more
