Starry Night is the most recognisable piece of art by Vincent van Gogh. Artist painted it in 1889 during his stay in the asylum near Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. Although it is clearly a nocturnal image, Vincent painted it by day, in several sessions. Painting does not represent any real place in southern France, but rather a mix of locations and objects Vincent was familiar with: cypresses, church spires, houses on the hillside.
But most of all this masterpiece is about the sky above us. Van Gogh created stars, a waning crescent of the moon and bright planet Venus connected in a galactic spectacle. The entire sky is pulsating with massive energy and seems to move around in some kind of cosmic dance. Our Starry Night art print in giclée technique accurately reproduces artist’s thick brushwork and exquisite colours of this magnificent painting.
