Location : Museum of modern art, New York City. The Starry Night is an oil on canvas by the Dutch post-impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh. Painted in June, 1889, it depicts the view from the east – facing window of his asylum room at Saint – Rémy – de -Provence, just before sunrise, with the addition of an idealized village. It has been in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City since 1941, acquired through the Lillie P. Bliss Bequest. It is regarded as among Van Gogh 's finest
Thirteen months after he completed Starry Night, van Gogh died of a gunshot wound . The first thing that I noticed about the painting, The Starry Night, is the artist’s dominant use of the colors blue and yellow. The night sky is depicted in different shades of blue and dark green. The dark blue sky is reflected in the mountains and in the village. Hints of light blue and
In one’s point of view, Van Gogh’s mental instability created a tumultuous genesis for his emotional rendering of his surroundings and inspired each scene with an unfathomable subconscious that reflects on his artwork. Beyond a shadow of a doubt, ‘The Starry Night’, painted in June, 1889 is chosen for this essay. This work of art is considered one of Van Gogh’s finest work and certainly, one of the most identified paintings in the history of Western Art. To described his inspiration, he said, “This morning I saw the country from my window a long time before sunrise, with nothing but the morning star, which looked very big.” This art piece was painted from the view by the east-facing window of his asylum room at Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, France, the year before his death. It was there that he sought relief from his psychological agonizing and throughout that time, he continued pursing his love of art.
My interpretation of Starry Night is just one of the many and it remains very much an elusive work to art critics. Nobody genuinely really knows Van Gogh's intention of painting this piece, everybody seems to be utilizing different codes to decipher what Van Gogh was endeavoring to bring across. Another academic thought this painting to be a convergence of historical forces as it was during this time when there was a public fascination with astronomy and astrology with people like Jules Verne inditing about travelling to the
Who knew being inside an asylum could bring amazing creations? The crescent moon and stars hanging over a small village are perfectly joined by blue and yellow swirls contrasting colors between dark and light. Compared to other Van Gogh’s artworks, Starry Night shows melancholy and happiness together. Some people say it’s a night landscape he captured from what he saw outside the window while being kept in Saint-Remy’s asylum. Others say it was painted by memory by a dream he supposedly had.
Van Gogh is the king of light because he disperses a lot of colors on to this painting, making it look very illusive, or different. Another thing about this oil painting is the colors, which is yellow and blue, and they point out his work of art is classified as impressionism, which overall, “Van Gogh oil painting to display in their vision of reality” (oil painting-planet.com). Van Gogh also uses tone when creating light for his paintings because this is an example of his expression lines and which this also creates an arbitrary color scheme through the painting. Arbitrary is the artistic style that makes sense for this painting because this shows how the mixture of colors can become implied to its mediums. For this painting, the medium was oil, or oil pastel, but the point is that the colors has to blend in with the canvas which Van Gogh masters to create an impressive impasto painting.
And many of them appear also in "The Picture of Dorian Gray". Some of the plenty gothic elements are: the evil, the secret places, the scary atmosphere. The protagonist is good at first, but transforms in a bad person; handsome at first but he transforms in an ugly person at the end because of his character and the portrait, represents his inner soul. The portrait, the main symbol of the novel, carries all the marks of Gray 's degeneration, who is exploring all possible vices and desires, without to notice his moral decay. And all these marks show on the canvas, become a sort of conscience for Dorian.
Artwork could be defined as a universal language that can carry ideas and emotions of an artist toward audiences via a particular narrative. Presently, there are many memorable art pieces from various artists. Claude Monet and Pablo Picasso as well have become prominent from their unique styles of artwork, which conveys a profound feeling through basic elements of art, such as use of color and a narrative. Although two of them are highly notable for art, there are four differences between Monet’s garden and Picasso’s garden, which are artist’s background information, technique, inspiration and meaning. The first difference between Monet’s garden and Picasso’s garden is artist’s background information.
Safe in this deliberate world, the two men standing there in the distance remain terribly masculine. In the foreground unified nature has come close to crossing the fence, close enough to distort the form and personality of the central character. But the fence still protects it from total absorption into subjective madness. Edward Munch is a very sophisticated kind of artist, he always depict an honest, even ugly, glance of his inner troubles and feelings of anxiety through what he called his “soul painting,” he puts more importance on personal meaning than on technical skill or “beauty,” which is a traditional goal of art. Munch’s personal experience and interpretation of “nature” was very different than one can imagine.
Van Gogh painted this piece in 1889 while he was in Saint Rémy seeking treatment in a mental asylum. Interestingly enough, he painted this piece from his memory and it was supposed to have been based on a constellation arrangement he had seen earlier on in the night sky of Provence. Starry Night is perhaps one of his most famous and yet most elusive works. The first thing that I noticed was the overwhelming night sky, which takes up most of the background. Its swirling, flowing lines appear to be swishing across the background in this gentle, wavy motion and seem to be merging at the centre to form this spiral-like formation.
