The universe of Van Gogh lasted forever in the work Starry Night. This is an illusion which exceeds any trails the Byzantine or Roman artists had attempted to perform the great mysteries of the Christian. The eruptible stars Van Gogh painted had closer relationship to the exploration of space than the mysterious faith in that era. However, this illusion was created by the accurate strokes which spent a lot of time. When we get to know the expressionism in painting, we tend to link it with courageous strokes. These unrestrained or flaming strokes came from intuitive or spontaneous actions. They were not restrained by the process of rational thoughts or rigorous techniques. The works of Van Gogh are new, original and unconventional. It's because of his supernatural or at least extrasensory experience. And this experience can be proved by a careful stroke. This stroke is like the artists are racking their brains and copying the things they are watching in front of them accurately. |
In some ways, it's actually true. Because Van Gogh was a painter painting what he saw. If he saw the phantoms, then he painted the phantoms. Starry Night is a familiar and remote landscape painting. This can be seen from the high viewpoint techniques of the landscape painter Bruegel in the 16th century, although the direct source of inspiration of Van Gogh came from some landscape painting of the Impressionists.
The lofty cypresses are flowing leisurely in front of us, the small village in the valley perches peacefully under the protection of the ogival church. All the stars and planets in the universe are rotating and erupting in the "last judgment". This last judgment is not for humanity but for the solar system.
This work was created in the Saint Remy sanatorium in June 1889. He was admitted to this sanatorium after the second crash of his nerves. His state of illness was good and bad sometimes, he was full of emotions when he was in his right senses and kept painting ceaselessly. The main colors are blue and violet and beating the shining yellow regularly. The dark green and brown cypress in the foreground means the vast night in the world. Vincent Van Gogh inherited the great traditions of portraiture; this is uncommon in the artists of his generation.
