UNDERGOING TREATMENT AT A PSYCHIATRIC HOSPITAL
Van Gogh painted The Starry Night while undergoing treatment at the Saint-Paul-de-Mausole, a psychiatric hospital in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence in the south of France. Forbidden by the hosptial staff to paint his bedroom, he painted the view from his bedroom window no fewer than twenty-one times at different times of day and under various weather conditions, including sunrise, moonrise, sunshine-filled days, overcast days, windy days, and one day with rain. "Through the iron-barred window," he wrote to his brother in 1889, "I can see an enclosed square of wheat ... above which, in the morning, I watch the sun rise in all its glory."
