This week, I'm borrowing some of my friend Leah's photos from her trip this summer. Since she's an artist, she loves to visit places where other artists created.
While staying in Arles, they traveled to St. Remy and visited St. Paul du Mausole, the mental health hospital where Van Gogh stayed for 53 weeks. It is still a working hospital, but it allows tours and has some great tributes to Van Gogh. According to the website, Van Gogh created 143 oil paintings and 100 drawings while he stayed there, including his famous Starry Night and The Irises.
Van Gogh's paintbrushes.
The entrance looks so quintessential French, doesn't it.
I look forward to seeing what everyone else is dreaming about this week. Please leave a comment, and visit each other's blogs for more French inspiration.
