L'arlésienne 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 café 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 (the café is the subject of the night café), 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 1, or more probably november 2) 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, "knocked off in one hour.The above description is of the original painting (original painting is not the part of this product, it is only for your reference).
