The Zouave – seated full figure

The Zouave – seated full figure

"the study I did of it seems very hard to me, and yet I’d always like to work on portraits that are vulgar, even garish like that one. It teaches me, and that’s what I ask of my work above all. And now the second portrait will be seated; full length, against a white wall." To Theo. Arles, Thursday, 21 June 1888.
