Throughout the story “The Moon and Sixpence” the character Dirk Stroeve plays a serious role and also a big part in Charles Stricklands life. Stroeve is a plump man who is an easy target. Strickland throughout the book has picked on Stroeve and taken advantage of the fact that Stroeve is such a nice guy and gets easily walked all over. It is sad to the point that Strickland even has an affair with Stroeves wife messing with her head and causing her suicide. But Stroeve for some reason sticks to Strickland because he knows how great of an artist Stickland is. Is it fair that Stroeve is treated this way because he can recognize the talent of Stickland? Strickland’s talents stretch beyond the art that he paints. He also has done carvings, which include bedposts and crown molding. Stroeve notices this, and puts up with the nonsense that Strickland gives him over everyday life. Stroeve recognizes that Strickland one day will become famous with his paintings and even supports him financially. The reason to Stroeve recognizing this talent in Strickland is because Stroeve too is a painter and has the same mentality that Strickland has when it comes to the world of art. It is kind of similar to a basketball player recognizing things other basketball players do that someone with the untrained eye might overlook, or the same with soccer and baseball. Stroeve knows that he is a mediocre painter and knows that Strickland has talent and can make art that others cannot notice. Stroeve has a gift that not many people have; Stroeve has compassion and the ability to see the best in people. He was able to see the inner beauty in Blanche even given the way she came into his life, he was still willing to take her on and financially support her and eventually fall in love with her. Unfortunately for him it was not reciprocating. Dirk does not have a mean bone in his body and for that, it leaves him naive to life. This is the cause for Blanche to leave him for Strickland and thus
