Van Gogh in St Remy de Provence

Cloisters at St Paul-de-Mausole

After falling out with Gaugin and famously chopping his own ear off, Van Gogh checked into the St Paul de Mausole asylum.

Here he stayed for twelve months and painted many famous works such as Starry Night and Irises (both 1889). Today the pretty building is a monastery but has a museum open to the public.

Have you followed in Van Gogh’s footsteps at St Paul de Mausole?
