van Gogh’s Ward of Arles Hospital [EOL in Art 20]

In 1889, Vincent van Gogh painted “Ward of Arles Hospital” where he spent some time the yea before he died.  

Debra Mancoff comments, “the exaggerated length of the corridor and the nervous contours that delineate the figures of the patients express the emotional weight of his isolation and confinement.”
