WELCOME TO THE VINCENT VAN GOGH GALLERY!

Welcome to the Van Gogh Gallery - the definitive reference for information about the life and work of Vincent van Gogh. With a career that ran a little over a decade, he produced an astonishing amount of work: 1,000 drawings, 150 watercolors, 10 watercolors, 9 lithographs, an etching, and over 900 paintings. We have also put together his biography, spanning his youth until death, going into his mental state, his influences, and the world in which he lived. We hope to share Van Gogh’s legacy with as many people as we can and give his genius the appreciation he lacked in life.

Van Gogh painted The Mulberry Tree in October of 1889, during his stay at the sanitorium Saint-Paul-de-Mausole in Saint-Rémy-en-Provence. His time in the asylum was a refuge from the social mores and expectations of everyday life.
