Roman Arena Arles.
There are signs or easels all over Arles depicting his paintings. .
This one showing the crowd at the bull fights...which the arena is used for today, and was then.
The cafe terrace today
and when Van Gogh painted it.
After a fight with Gauguin, a seizure or a drunken stupor Van Gogh supposedly pulled a razor and ended up in this hospital, across the plaza from the cafe, missing an ear. He said he didn't remember what happened. Others said he cut it off himself....Who knows?
He painted many paintings while in the hospital, including the courtyard.
He later ended up in a mental hospital in St. Remy, also in Provence.
There was another easel down by the Rhone River, where our ship was docked.
Such a sad, and aggravated life this talented young man lived.
