When Paul Gauguin agreed to visit Vincent Van Gogh in Arles in 1888, Van Gogh hoped for friendship and the realisation of his idea of an artists' collective. While waiting, in August he painted 'Sunflowers'.
In preparation for Gauguin's visit, Van Gogh bought two beds on advice from the station's postal supervisor Joseph Roulin, whose portrait he painted. When Gauguin consented to work and live in Arles with him, Van Gogh started to work on the Décoration for the Yellow House. He completed two chair paintings: Van Gogh's Chair and Gauguin's Chair.
After much pleading from Van Gogh, Gauguin arrived in Arles on 23 October 1888 and, in November the two painted together. Gauguin depicted Van Gogh in his 'The Painter of Sunflowers'.
