Saint Paul de Mausole Monastery

Stay of Van Gogh

Vincent Van Gogh arrived on May 8, 1889

in Saint-Rémy de Provence, coming from Arles, 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, very inspired, happy and relieved to find a serene and understanding atmosphere amongst the nuns and nurses who received him, he carried out 143 oil paintings and more than 100 drawings in the space of 53 weeks.
