This is the little boy Camille Roulin. He was eleven years old when his portrait was painted. Van Gogh was friends with Camille's father Joseph Roulin, who was a postman. In December 1888, Van Gogh conceived the plan of painting the whole Roulin family: ‘husband, wife, baby, the little boy and the son of 16 – each types in their own right, and really French, even if they look like Russians.’
