Vincent van Gogh

  1. 1. 1 Vincent Van Gogh Starry Night
  2. 2. 2 Vincent Van Gogh Painters to take them alone-dead and‑ buried speak to the next generation or to several succeeding generations through their work. Is that all, or is there more to come? Perhaps death is not the hardest thing in a painter's life." Vincent van Gogh Letter: 9 July 1888
  3. 3. 3 Starry Night was painted while Vincent was in the asylum at Saint-Rémy and his behavior was very erratic at the time, due to the severity of his attacks. Unlike most of Van Gogh's works, Starry Night was painted from memory and not outdoors as was Vincent's preference. This may, in part, explain why the emotional impact of the work is so much more powerful than many of Van Gogh's other works from the same period. Starry Night: Saint-Remy 1889 is probably Vincent van Gogh's most famous painting. Instantly recognizable because of its unique style, this work has been the subject of poetry, fiction, CD ROMs as well‑ as the well known song "Vincent" or "Starry, Starry Night" by Don McLean. Starry Night stands out as one of the most important works of art produced in the nineteenth century.
