Espace Van Gogh Review

A strikingly resonant site, this was the hospital to which the tortured artist repaired after cutting off his earlobe. Its courtyard has been impeccably restored and landscaped to match one of Van Gogh's paintings. The cloistered grounds have become something of a shrine for visitors, and there is a photo plaque comparing the renovation to some of the master's paintings, including Le Jardin de la Maison de Santé. The exhibition hall is open for temporary exhibitions; the garden is always on view. Also check out shows of contemporary art inspired by the artist at the beautifully restored Fondation Vincent Van Gogh, 5 Place Honoré Clair.
