The Starry Night is a painting by the Dutch painter Vincent Van Gogh, made in 1889 and kept at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The painting represents a nocturnal landscape of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, just before sunrise.
During his internment Van Gogh painted a considerable amount of paintings, in which he freed himself from Impressionism and arrived at a symbolic style.
Blue dominates the painting. The little village lays at the base in its browns, greys and blues. The yellow and white of the stars and the moon stands out against the sky. In contrast, the little village below is painted with rigid lines that interrupt the flow of the brush strokes . The cypress connects the human nature to the divine. This is one of the most interesting painting ever made!
