Corridor_48.190.2

Our Inspiration:Corridor in the Asylum

Vincent van Gogh (Dutch, 1853–1890)
Oil color and essence over black chalk on pink laid (“Ingres”) paper, 25 5/8 x 19 5/16 in., 1889
Bequest of Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, 1948   48.190.2

Struggles with his mental health led Van Gogh to admit himself to the psychiatric hospital of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. Throughout his 12-month confinement, he continued to paint. In addition to the picturesque wheat fields, olive groves, cypresses, roses, and irises in and around the monastery, he captured this interior view of one of the asylum’s corridors. Despite his colorful palette, the sharply receding corridor feels hollow and haunted. His time in the asylum did not afford the cure the artist had hoped for, and he died by suicide shortly thereafter.
