  14. 14. The doctors Letter #567 Arles, 2nd January, 1889 My Dear Theo, So as to reassure you on my account, I write to you these few lines in the office of the intern, Dr. M. Rey, whom you have yourself met. I shall stay here at the hospital for a few more days, then I think I can count on quietly returning to the house. Now I only beg of you one thing, not to worry, because that would cause me too much of a worry. Now let’s talk of our friend Gauguin, have I terrified him? In short why hasn’t he given me any sign of life? He must have left with you. Besides, he had a need to return to Paris, and in Paris perhaps, he will feel more at home than here. Tell Gauguin to write to me, and that I think about him all the time. A good handshake, I have read and re-read your letter about your meeting with the Bongers. It is perfect. As for me, I am content to stay just as I am. Again a good handshake to you and Gauguin. Vincent Write to me at the same address, Pace Lamartine, 2. [Added to this letter was a note from Dr. Rey] I add a few words to your brother’s letter to reassure you, in my turn, on his account. I am happy to tell you that my predictions have been realized and that this over-excitement has only been temporary. I feel strongly that he will be himself in a few days. I have made a point of his writing to you himself, to tell you in his own words his condition. I made him come down to my office to talk for a bit. It will entertain me and it will do him good. Please accept my kind regards, I am yours very truly, Rey Click here to learn more about Dr. Rey

  16. 16. The Doctors Theo Van Gogh, thought that Dr. Gachet would take good care of Vincent during his recovery because he was sensitive to artists Soon after Vincent got to know Dr. Gachet he described him in a letter to Theo as: “sicker than I am, I think, or shall we say just as much . . . .” Dr. Gachet is the last medical person to take care of Vincent before his suicide There were not very many medicines available for Dr Gachet to Portrait of Dr Gachet, 1890 (1st Version) use that could treat Vincent’s illness Oil on Canvas Private Collection “I've done the portrait of M. Gachet with a melancholy expression, which might well seem like a grimace to those who see it... Sad but gentle, yet clear and intelligent, that is how many portraits ought to be done... “ Vincent
