From The Art Gallery Of The Cave Of Cool

Even Van Gog's Mailman Had A Magnicent Beard

Van Gogh and Joseph Roulin met and became good friends and drinking companions. Van Gogh compared Roulin to Socrates on many occasions, while Roulin was not the most attractive man, van Gogh found him to be such a good soul and so wise and so full of feeling and so trustful. By appearance, Roulin reminded van Gogh of Russian novelist Fyodor Dostoevsky, the same broad forehead, nose, and beard.
