Vincent van Gogh received psychiatric treatment in the Saint-Paul-de-Mausole hospital in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence from May 1889 to May 1890. He was given his own studio, was much admired by the staff and was the only patient who was allowed to go outside the building. Van Gogh produced about 100 drawings and 150 paintings in and around the institution, including Irises, Wheatfield with Reaper, Starry Night and numerous paintings of olive trees and cypresses. The area surrounding this historic location, in particular the monastery and the Roman chapel, are just as the artists would have known them. His room has been reconstructed and can be visited.
