Van Gogh and Saint Paul de Mausole
In 1889, Vincent Van Gogh was admitted to the Saint Paul of Mausole Monastery, a psychiatric establishment situated in Saint-Rémy de Provence. It was a peaceful haven that would inspire 146 oil paintings and 150 drawings. We talked to Jean-Marc Boulon, a psychiatrist and the current medical director of the institution – which is still in operation today – about one of the greatest painters of the 20th century and the time he spent at Saint-Rémy.
