Advertisement for the asylum

Shown here is the prospectus of the asylum at Saint-Rémy de Provence. The asylum took pride in its good facilities and the humane treatment of its patients. The asylum offered four levels of residency for its patients--from first class apartments "with luxury" on down. Vincent was placed in the third class accommodation at 800 francs a year, but this provided for a clean bedroom, as well as a room for a studio.
