In learning about therapeutic landscapes as well as healing gardens, the story of Van Gogh initially came to mind. He checked himself into the St. Paul asylum in 1889, and remained a patient there until 1890. Most of his paintings at this time were either drawn from his window looking out, or on the property of the hospital of the surrounding landscapes. What interests me about this time in his life is the paintings he created were dominantly of the nature surrounding the hospital, and had a happier tone than those painted of the interior of the hospital itself. These scenes provided him with a sense of calm, as he had a deep connection with nature. This tells a similar story as some of the studies we have read about, and just how important it is for there to be landscapes, gardens, and integration of nature in spaces for healing.
