Van Gogh in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence

Van Gogh in

Saint-Rémy-de-Provence

  1. 8 May 1889
     - 16 May 1890

Vincent spent a year in an asylum in Saint-Rémy de Provence and painted many of his most famous works there.

On 8 May 1889, after months of hospital treatment in Arles, Vincent allowed himself to be committed to the Saint-Paul de Mausole psychiatric institution in Saint-Rémy de Provence. He was treated by Dr Théophile Peyron. In between his psychoses, Vincent made numerous paintings and drawings, first in the asylum and its gardens and later beyond, among the olive gardens and cypresses, in the Alpilles mountains and in the village. Saint-Rémy served as the setting for many of his most famous works. After a little more than a year, on 16 May 1890, he left for Auvers-sur-Oise, tired of being in the asylum and wishing to return to the north. Moreover, Dr Peyron had pronounced him cured.
