Corridor in the Asylum - Description

Vincent van Gogh's painting of the hallway of the asylum of Saint-Paul-de-Mausole in Saint-Rémy, shows a long hallway of the institution where the artist spent a year near the end of his life. The buildings were built in the 12th century, and the archways and vaulted ceilings of that period in architecture are well defined here. However, the archways are not consistent, as the arch nearest to the viewer seems lower and not as ornate. At the end of the tunnel of arches stands a brightly colored yellow doorway: another element commonly seen in van Gogh paintings of the time period. A figure is shown in the middle of the hallway, darting into another room. This figure, Corridor in the Asylum is not drawn in great detail. The interplay of light and dark on the floor shows itself as competing rivers of light and dark brown. These rivers are bisected with areas of yellow and green. It does not seem safe to walk here. The brushwork in this painting is significant. There are no circular swirls of color, as seen in other van Gogh paintings. The color is rendered here in swift strokes of nearly the same length and breadth throughout. The color choices are limited to browns, greens, blues and whites as well. The earth tone-based palette does not provide the shocking juxtaposition of color seen in other van Gogh paintings of this period.
