Vincent Van Gogh Starry Night Night Light
Vincent van Gogh Starry Night Night Light
This beautiful Vincent van Gogh Starry Night Night Light is printed in full color on Mylar. It features the most famous painting by Dutch post-impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh. The blue night sky is filled with swirling clouds, stars, and a bright crescent moon. It has been in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City since 1941. The painting is among Van Gogh’s most well-known works.
The Starry Night is the only nocturne in the series of views from his bedroom window. In early June, Vincent wrote to Theo, “This morning I saw the countryside from my window a long time before sunrise with nothing but the morning star, which looked very big”. Researchers have determined that Venus was indeed visible at dawn in Provence in the spring of 1889 and at that time was near its brightest possible. So the brightest “star” in the painting, just to the viewer’s right of the cypress tree, is actually Venus.
