The Starry Night

This is Van Gogh’s Starry Nights – A magical painting alive with dazzling stars, moons, and nebulae. So magnificent and overwhelming that they render the houses insignificant and inconspicuous. A wonderful piece of work that presents us with a distorted view of the landscape so as to choose the sky as the most dominant area of the painting. The human world is overwhelmed by the immense shinning and bedazzling colors of the cosmos. A representation that reinforces the fragility of our earthly world. Quite an amazing perspective indeed!
