Blue dominates the artwork, blending hills into the sky. The little town lays at the base in the painting in grays, browns, and blues. Despite the fact that each building is obviously laid out in dark, the yellow and white of the stars and the moon emerge against the sky, attracting the eyes to the sky.

History of the Painting

This morning I saw the countryside from my window a long time before sunrise, with nothing but the morning star, which looked very big,” van Gogh wrote to his sibling Theo, portraying his motivation for one of his best-known artworks, The Starry Night (1889). The window to which he alludes was in the Saint-Paul haven in Saint-Rémy, in southern France, where he sought respite from his emotional sufferings in which he severed a part of his own ear with a razor, while at the same time proceeding to make art.

The Starry Night depicts van Gogh’s immediate perceptions and also his creative imagination, memories and feelings. The steeple of the church, for instance, looks like those regular in his local Holland, not in France. The spinning frames in the sky, then again, coordinate distributed galactic perceptions of dust storms and gas known as nebulae. The painting is expressive and balanced, the composition is organized by the cypress, steeple, and central nebulae, while his short brushstrokes and thickly applied paint set its surface in movement.
