He was one of the greatest painters of the 19th century. He first painted a corner of the night sky in Cafe Terrace (oil on canvas). This and Cafe Terrace makes a beautiful wall home decor print. Perfect for a living room or most any room. This vintage painting is one of my favorites.

Van Gogh Starry Night Painting

Vincent van Gogh, a Dutch Post-Impressionist painter, is responsible for the creation of the oil-on-canvas work titled “The Starry Night.” It was painted in June of 1889, and it portrays the view from the window of his asylum chamber at Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, which faced east. It was shortly before daybreak, and there is an imaginary settlement in the foreground.

Since 1941, when it was bought through the Lillie P. Bliss Bequest, it has been an important part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Considered by many art experts to be Van Gogh’s masterpiece. The Starry Night is widely considered to be one of the most iconic paintings in the history of Western art.

The history of Vincent van Gogh’s The Starry Night

After suffering a mental collapse on December 23, 1888, which led to the self-mutilation of his left ear, Vincent van Gogh voluntarily checked himself into the Saint-Paul-de-Mausole lunatic asylum on May 8, 1889. He remained there until his death in 1890. Saint-Paul-de-Mausole was a hotel that catered to the wealthy and was less than half full when Van Gogh arrived. This allowed the artist to not only occupy a bedroom on the second story but also a room on the ground floor that he used as a painting studio. The hotel was located in a former monastery.

The prolific output of paintings that Van Gogh had begun in Arles continued unabated during the year that he was a patient at the asylum in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. During this time, he created some of the most well-known works of his career, such as the Irises from May 1889, which can now be found in the J. Paul Getty Museum, and the blue self-portrait from September 1889, which can be found in the Musée d’Orsay. Both of these paintings are now in museums. Midway through the month of June, maybe around the 18th, Van Gogh painted The Starry Night. On that day, he wrote to his brother Theo to let him know that he had a fresh study of a starry sky.

The Painting Known as Starry Night

It would be misleading to say that Van Gogh painted The Starry Night from memory despite the fact that he worked on the painting throughout the day in the studio that was located on the ground floor of his home. Van Gogh painted variations of this view no less than twenty-one times, including The Starry Night, and it has been determined that the view in question is the one that can be seen from the window of his bedroom, which faces east. Around the 23rd of May in the year 1889, he wrote a letter to his brother Theo in which he said, “Through the iron-barred window, I can see an enclosed square of wheat… above which, in the morning, I watch the sun rise in all of its splendour.”

Van Gogh captured the scene at a variety of times of the day and in a wide range of climatic conditions, including the dawn, the moonrise, days filled with sunshine, days filled with clouds, days filled with wind, and one day filled with rain. Van Gogh was not permitted to paint in his room at the hospital, but he was able to draw sketches in ink or charcoal on paper there. Eventually, he would base newer variations on prior versions of his work.

The diagonal line that enters from the right in all of these paintings depicts the low rolling hills that are seen in the Alpilles mountains. This line is the pictorial element that unites all of these paintings. In fifteen of the twenty-one different iterations, there is a stand of cypress trees visible beyond the distant wall that encloses the wheat field. In six of these paintings, including “Wheat Field with Cypresses” and “The Starry Night,” Van Gogh brought the trees closer to the picture plane in order to give the impression that they were larger than they actually were.

Mountainous Landscape Behind Saint-Rémy was one of the first paintings of the vista, and it may currently be found in Copenhagen. The Enclosed Wheatfield After a Storm is representative of a series of preliminary sketches that Vincent van Gogh created for the painting. It is not quite clear if the artwork was created inside or outside of his studio. In the letter that he wrote on June 9 outlining it, he mentioned that he had been working outside for a few days.

In a letter he wrote to his sister Wil on June 16, 1889, Van Gogh provided a description of the second of the two landscapes he mentioned he was working on at the time. This painting, known as Green Wheat Field with Cypress, was the first one he created at the asylum that was definitely painted en plein air. It is presently in Prague. Wheatfield, Saint-Rémy de Provence is a study for it, and it may currently be found in New York. After two days, Vincent wrote Theo a letter in which he stated that he had recently painted “a starry sky.”

The series of paintings that he did from his bedroom window includes only one nighttime scene, and that is The Starry Night. At the beginning of June, Vincent wrote a letter to Theo in which he stated, “This morning I observed the countryside from my window a long time before sunrise with nothing except the morning star, which appeared extremely enormous.” According to the findings of recent studies, Venus, sometimes known as the “morning star,” was in fact visible in Provence in the spring of 1889 during the period in question, and it shone with an intensity that was very close to reaching its maximum potential. Venus is actually depicted as the brightest “star” in the artwork, which may be found just to the viewer’s right of the cypress tree.

Even if the Moon had been in its waning crescent phase at the time Van Gogh painted the picture, his depiction of the Moon would not have been accurate from an astronomical standpoint. The Moon in the painting is stylized because astronomical records show that at the time Van Gogh painted the picture, the Moon was actually in its waning gibbous phase.

The settlement, which is based on a drawing that Van Gogh produced from a hillside above the village of Saint-Rémy, is the one pictorial element that could not possibly have been seen from where Van Gogh was imprisoned. Pickvance thought was done later, and the steeple was more Dutch than Provencal. It was a conflation of several paintings and drawings that Van Gogh had done during his time in Nuenen, and it was the first of his “reminiscences of the North” that he was to paint and draw early the following year. Pickvance thought was done later. Hulsker believed that the scene that was depicted on the back of the card was also a study for the painting.

Thoughts on the Van Gogh Painting “Starry Night”

Van Gogh wrote a vast number of letters, but in almost none of them does he mention The Starry Night or anything related to it. After mentioning that he had painted a starry sky in June, Van Gogh next mentioned the painting in a letter to Theo on or about September 20, 1889, when he included it in a list of paintings he was sending to his brother in Paris and referred to it as a “night study.” After reporting that he had painted a starry sky in June, Van Gogh next mentioned the painting in a letter to Theo on or about September 20, 1889. In reference to this collection of paintings, he stated in his writing, “All in all the only things I consider a little good in it are the Wheatfield, the Mountain, the Orchard, the Olive trees with the blue hills and the Portrait and the Entrance to the quarry, and the rest says nothing to me”; “the rest” would include The Starry Night in this context.

The Starry Night was one of the paintings that he chose not to send when he made the decision to withhold three works from this group in order to reduce the amount of money he would have to spend on postage. In the final passage of the letter, which was written in late November 1889 and addressed to the painter Émile Bernard, Van Gogh referred to the painting as a “failure.”
