The Starry Night was painted by Vincent van Gogh during his stay in hospital window at Saint-Rémy in 1889, one year before his death. Although the canvas painting with oil on held out multiple interpretations, van Gogh’s apparent theme is his communication of the vastness in his artwork. The painting depicts a small town, verified as the view of van Gogh from his hospital window, which was under a blue and vast dark night sky that is filled with luminous stars. There are many interpretations of Starry Night which is came from van Gogh’s influences in his poetry, personal religious conflict, astronomy, depression, all of which convey van Gogh’s representation in creating an unique lucius view of reality.

The Starry Night has kind of a weird, he referred to the painting in a letter he send to his brother and called it "exaggerations in terms of composition."

The Post-Impressionism artist Vincent Van Gogh created his masterwork Starry Night in 1889. Unlike the painting of Altdorfer, this painting was more personal and had the conflict of man vs. himself. The painting of Starry Night took place in France while he was in the care of the Saint Remy of Provence Psychiatric Hospital. Van Gogh yearned for a life that was calm and harmonious during his seemingly never ending depressive state. In Starry Night Van Gogh’s point of view is omniscient as well but, he detaches himself even further. He Van Gogh creates a night sky embellished by the swirling of its clouds and the illuminating blaze from its stars. He uses lines that are arabesque in continuation that creates a fluid like design over the work making it harmonious. Located below the dynamic sky is a row rolling hills in which the artist used different tones to create a sense of depth in his work by the use of atmospheric perspective however, the painting still has a look of flatness. The hills lead the eyes to a small calm inviting town created using simple shapes. The church in the valley towers over all the homes as if it was a guardian. The tall steeple of the church is not able to touch the magnificent sky however, there is an eerie cypress tree in the foreground it is able to touch the

Throughout this art critique, the painting that will be examined is “The Starry Night”, by Vincent Van Gogh, completed in 1910. The night sky in this masterpiece Van Gogh “The Starry Night” is brimming with whirling clouds, a bright circular moon, and shining and glowing stars. The setting is wonderful and the swirls in the night sky really make my eyes flow easily all over the portrait, also because of the perfect spacing between each of the curved lines.

There is such great flow in this painting that helps the viewer easily recognize what is what and brings such joy and movement to ones eye. When I look

The sky is filled with numerous shades of blue and bright shining stars as well as the illuminating moon. The mountains are painted with strokes of blue, which creates the
I chose this painting since it is a portrayal of the artist’s emotions, memories, and imagination. The painting embodies Van Gogh’s unique form of expression and style and continues to have a significant influence on modern art. It is difficult to decipher the code and accurately determine Van Gogh’s intentions. Many critics, however, consider the painting to have a religious theme. This has however been disputed by a cross-section of analysts. The painting could be a representation of Van Gogh’s home country of Holland due to the landscapes. Starry Night is one of Van Gogh’s most famous pieces. It particularly tends to draw resemblance to some of his previous works.
Vincent Van Gogh created the piece Starry Night in June 1889 while he was in Saint Rémy seeking treatment in a mental asylum. The painting depicts a small village with whirling clouds, shining stars, and a bright crescent moon above it. The piece is currently on display at the Museum of Modern Art, with three of his other works. He used Paul Gauguin’s technique of using bale of jute for the canvas, causing him to apply paint thickly and to use heavier brush strokes.

Starry Night is a psychedelic fantasy painting that depicts a night sky rolling with a chromatic blue swirl, a glowing yellow crescent moon and many rendered stars as many radiating orbs. The night appears chaotic, even agitated, with the swirling clouds like waves. The stars are also painted with yellow in circular form, rather than the five-pointed
Vincent Van Gogh had a plethora of mental illnesses. He suffered from episodes of depression, paralyzing anxiety, and, on some accounts, bipolar disorder. He was well aware of his condition. He once said, “I put my heart and soul into my work, and have half lost my mind in the process.” Everybody knows the story of how Van Gogh mutilated his own ear. This is true, but it only happened because of a massive mental breakdown in December of 1888. In May of 1889, Van Gogh admitted himself into the asylum due to his mental state. There he would sit in his room and look out the one window that he had. This is actually the source of the scene within The Starry Night. The small town is Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, which is in southern France. He had a view, the exact view that we see in the painting, of this town from his sanitarium room window. Of course, he left out the visual of the metal bars in the window. Although he started to go mentally insane, his mental illnesses allowed him to do great things. The painting depicts Saint-Rémy at night, even though he painted it from memory during the daytime. This was not the only account of this. He later had to repaint an image because it had been destroyed in travel after he was discharged from the asylum. Van Gogh had to paint The Starry Night from memory because his art supplies were kept in a separate room from his main room. He was in the asylum from May of 1889 through May of 1890. He became very obsessed with nature during his time, especially trees, the landscape at the asylum, and caterpillars symbolized the opportunity of transformation and change. He also saw budding flowers as a
The 1889 painting, Starry Night, conceptualized and composed by Vincent van Gogh has long been a favorite art piece of mine. I had learned about Vincent van Gogh at a young age however it was not until I was told to illustrate an image using van Gogh’s abstract style with oil pastels in a high school art class, that I had subconsciously gained more respect towards art. At first, I struggled; I often tend to be more of a realist than idealist. However, connecting with and reviewing his Starry Night painting seemed to hold a deeper meaning within the color scheme of blue and yellow and strategically placed curvatures. The illustration held life, passion, and spoke to the viewer without words that some days you need to let go of any rigid stress,
In 1889, Van Gogh created this piece during the time that he was being treated at Saint Remy mental institute. Surprisingly though, it was supposed to have been derived from his memory of the constellations in the sky that he had seen earlier that night. Starry Night is conceivably one of his most well-known and yet most intangible pieces of art. He used thick brush strokes which are possibly from his severe brain attacks and mental issues which create a bold and dramatized look. However, there is stability to his technique that contributes even more complexity, thus adding to the rich quality of his painting. The night sky portrayed by van Gogh in this painting is overflowing with spiraling clouds, a lively crescent moon, and glowing stars.
