February 17th, 1889 – Vincent is again released from the hospital in Arles as his symptoms subside.

He heads home during the day to work and takes his meals at the hospital and also sleeps there each night.  His neighbors are alarmed at his return and create a petition for the mayor alleging Vincent is a danger to women and children and drinks too much and is not in complete control of his faculties.  Within a week, the mayor has decided to agree with the petition’s recommendation that he be removed to either his family or an institution.


Leave your email address and Vincent will write you with a painting and his thoughts...

(Don’t worry, Vincent is busy painting and doesn’t send more than one a week!)
