The Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh

‘’The Starry Night’’ is one of the most famous paintings by Vincent van Gogh Subject of the representation is the landscape of a village at night and in the hills in the background. It 'important to note the church tower, which is typical of Holland, the artist's native country. In fact, unlike many other works of van Gogh's Starry Night was painted from memory and not en plein air as he used to do. The composition of the framework is simple: the night sky takes up about two thirds of the space of the canvas, while the remaining third is occupied by the village and the hills behind it. There is a strong contrast between the chaos of the sky and the calm order of the village. The cypress tree on the left creates a flaming link between earth and sky. From the point of view of technique he uses pure colors, violent, conflicting with each other, with no gradations and nuanced tonal passages. With precise strokes of yellow, orange and white van Gogh makes the intense brightness of this night. The brush strokes follow the contours of the figures insistently, expands dramatically. Among the terrifying vortex of the night sky, the stars only appear as fixed points and, therefore, as components can gravitate around which the color and thought. Starry Night is not only the most famous painting of Vincent, but it is also one of his most frequently discussed with regard to its meaning and its importance. I loved this picture because it gives me a sense of calm to see the stars and ,at the same time, a sense of restlessness in observing the wind that moves the sky and the tree on the left.
