Although suffering from crises mixing delusions and paranoia, the productivity of the Dutch painter was never such as during his stay in Saint-Rémy de Provence. From his small workshop in the monastery of Saint Paul de Mausole where he had a breathtaking view of the wheat fields and the Alpilles, he did a great deal of drawings and some 150 paintings, most of which are classified as great masterpieces.
As for the Parisian composer Charles Gounod, we can say that he falls under the spell of Saint-Rémy and the Alpilles from the beginning of his stay. It is there that he meets Frédéric Mistral and the latter encourages him to take up his quarters in the hotel business of Ville-Verte, now Hotel Gounod. It was during Gounod's stay in Saint-Rémy de Provence that the two men became friends. The result is Gounod's opera Mireille, taken from the Mistralian epic poem entitled Mirèio.
