Following the visit from his friend and fellow artist Paul Gaugin that culminated in the famous self-mutilation of his ear, Van Gogh was voluntarily committed to the asylum in Saint Remy in Provence, where he spent a year from summer 1889 to summer 1980.
After the incident with Gaugin, which was the culmination of a visit Van Gogh hoped would cement a productive and lengthy working relationship, the frequency and severity of the artist's breakdowns increased. He began to suffer paranoid delusions and frequently wrote to his beloved brother Theo describing the state of his mental health and the production of his most recent works. His paintings of this period are notable in that they are described within his letters with such positive energy and force, clearly forming an essential part of his self-treatment.
Mulberry Tree, the subject for which was to be found within the gardens of his sanatorium, is a reproduction of the drawn-out tension of a tree growing through the onset of Autumn. With the vivid games of light learned from the Impressionists, Van Gogh captured the shimmering presence of the tree, sitting resolute and silent, as another occupant of the asylum. Yet, the organism is surging with life – a beacon of hope for the brooding inmates. Like many other works of the period, Van Gogh was satisfied with the reproduction of nature he had created and mentioned it in a number of letters to his family and friends. His commanding use of blue and yellow which would find their genesis in his monumental sunflower studies, is applied with restraint and clarity of forethought. Whether confined to a hospital or free to roam amongst nature, Van Gogh sought to depict the constant renewal of the natural world around him, and consequently offered himself solace in the organic promise of rebirth and longevity.
