Fig 6.1- Starry Night

Text: Page 206

In 1869, Vincent Van Gogh, a Dutch Impressionist, painted Starry Night, a scene just before sunrise about an imaginary village, from the Saint-Paul-de-Mausole asylum window in the Saint-Remy-de-Provence in France. The imaginary village provides a symbol of a community where individuals with mental illness could someday be valued. Although Van Gogh viewed the painting as a total failure, he did write to his brother, Theo, that the sun inspired a new day as it rose in all its glory.
