View of Saintes-Maries (1888)

Vincent van Gogh traveled from Arles to the seaside village of Saint-Maries in early June 1888.

On 4 June 1888, he wrote to his brother Theo, “I am at last writing to you from Stes-Maries on the shore of the Mediterranean. The Mediterranean has the colors of mackerel, changeable I mean. You don’t always know if it is green or violet, you can’t even say it’s blue, because the next moment the changing light has taken on a tinge of pink or gray.”

“I brought three canvases and have covered them - two marines, a view of the village, and then some drawings which I will send you by post when I return to Arles tomorrow.”

“I do not think there are 100 houses in the village, or town The chief building, after the old church and an ancient fortress, is the barracks.“

Like Rain it sounded till it curved
And then I knew ‘twas Wind —
It walked as wet as any Wave
But swept as dry as sand —
When it had pushed itself away
To some remotest Plain
A coming as of Hosts was heard
That was indeed the Rain —
It filled the Wells, it pleased the Pools
It warbled in the Road —
It pulled the spigot from the Hills
And let the Floods abroad —
It loosened acres, lifted seas
The sites of Centres stirred
Then like Elijah rode away
Upon a Wheel of Cloud.


Rain, Vincent van Gogh, 1889

In May 1890, 37-year-old Vincent van Gogh left the asylum in Saint-Rémy to be cared for by 61-year-old Dr. Paul Gachet (who was also an amateur painter).

On 3 June 1890, van Gogh wrote to his brother Theo about Gachet: “He certainly seems to me as ill and dazed as you or me, and he is older and lost his wife a few years ago, but he is very much the doctor, and his profession and faith still sustain him. We are great friends already… .

“I am working on his portrait, the head with a white cap, very fair, very light, the hands also a light flesh tint, a blue frock coat and a cobalt blue background, leaning on a red table, on which are a yellow book and a foxglove plant with purple flowers.”
