Vincent seems to always be in artistic and emotional exhaustion. He is occasionally arrested by his aesthetic responses to the landscapes around Arles, which results in his rendering them either in oil or in a sketch pad. In Arles he finds a room in a yellow house. Vincent begins to contemplate the fleeting nature of some subjects of still life. He thinks about seasonal flowers, and the artistic process which renders a permanent and eternal quality to the representation of flowers on the canvas which do not wilt and wither.
For a while, Vincent's preferred medium becomes a large sketchbook given to him by a local woman and which he begins to fill with renderings of landscapes in pen and ink. Vincent continues to ponder various philosophical and existential questions such as his desire "not to see a landscape but only the eternity behind it", and that "there cannot be such a thing as nature without there also being a meaning to nature." Vincent wishes to devote increasing time to rendering the landscapes. Vincent is angry with students he encounters when painting who mock him and his work. The teachers and their students report his behavior to parents and town officials. His brother Theo is called to Arles from Paris, and manages to get Paul Gauguin (Oscar Isaac) to agree to visit Vincent. Gauguin soon arrives in Arles.
Vincent is at first exhilarated by the presence of Gauguin though things quickly sour. When Gauguin thereafter announces that he will soon depart, the news crushes Vincent. He then cuts off a piece of his ear to show Gauguin his artistic allegiance to Gauguin, but Gauguin has already departed. Vincent then gives the piece of his cut ear to a prostitute who is horrified and reports him. Vincent is sent to mental hospital in nearby Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. After some time, he is released by a sympathetic supervising pastor and goes to Auvers-sur-Oise since the town authorities in Arles deny him permission to stay.
