Vincent van Gogh - The Starry Night

'De Sterrennacht' ('nuit étoilée') by Vincent van Gogh

The painting depicts the view outside his sanatorium room window at night. It was painted in
Saint-Rémy, France in July 1890. It is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

"It often seems to me that the night is much more alive and richly colored than the day"
(van Gogh, 1888)

  1. I love this painting! It's hard for me not to think of the Don McLean song when I see it - love that song too.
