ABOUT THIS PIECEPost Impressionist Painter Vincent van Gogh's The Starry Night was made in 1889 and the original painting is in Museum of Modern Art New York. The original size of the work is 73,7 x 92,1 cm (29 x 36,25 in) and is made of oil on canvas.

 

Van Gogh's night sky is a field of roiling energy. Below the exploding stars, the village is a place of quiet order. Connecting earth and sky is the flamelike cypress, a tree traditionally associated with graveyards and mourning. But death was not ominous for van Gogh. " Looking at the stars always makes me dream," he said, "Why, I ask myself, shouldn't the shining dots of the sky be accessible as the black dots on the map of France? Just as we take the train get to Tarascon or Rouen, we take death to reach a star." The artist wrote of his experience hi his brother Theo: "This morning I saw the country from my window a long i me before sunrise, with nothing but the morning star, which looked very big." This morning star, or Venus, may be the large white star just left of center in The Starry Night. The hamlet, on the other hand, is invented, and the church spire evokes van Gogh's native land, the Netherlands. The painting, like its daytime companion, The Olive Trees, is rooted in imagination and memory.

 

Leaving behind the Impressionist doctrine of truth to nature in favor of restless feeling and intense color, as in this highly charged picture, van Gogh made his work a touchstone for all subsequent Expressionist painting. Van Gogh painted The Starry Night during his 12-month stay at the Saint-Paul-de-Mausole asylum near Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, France, several months after suffering a breakdown in which he severed a part of his own ear with a razor. While at the asylum, he painted during bursts of productivity that alternated with moods of despair. As an artist who preferred working from observation, van Gogh was limited to the subjects that surrounded him - his own likeness, views outside his studio window, and the surrounding countryside that he could visit with a chaperone.

 

The Artist: Vincent Willem van Gogh, (1853 - 1890), Dutch painter, generally considered the greatest after Rembrandt van Rijn, and one of the greatest of the Post-Impressionists.
