Saint Remy-de-Provence... Vincent Van Gogh

Saint-Paul de Mausolée Asylum

Vincent Van Gogh arrived on May 8, 1889 in Saint-Rémy de Provence to be "confined" by his wishes in the Saint-Paul de Mausolée Asylum.

Fascinated by the quality of the light and the beauty of the landscapes that he discovered in Saint-Rémy, he carried out 143 oil paintings and more than 100 drawings in the space of 53 weeks.
