Van Gogh - Hospital at Saint-Rémy-de -Provence

We just learned about the Van Gogh - Portrait of Dr. Felix Rey.

Another Van Gogh's painting is of the Hospital at Saint-Rémy-de -Provence.

About 5 months after Van Gogh was in the hospital for his ear getting cut off, he went to an asylum where he could get help to get his mind right.

He stayed at this asylum for a year, and made many paintings while he was there.
