The Starry Night, 1889
|The Starry Night was
painted near the mental asylum of Saint-Remy, 13 months before Van
Gogh's death at the age of 37. The painter's mental instability is
well known. He had committed himself to several asylums in hopes of
an cure. The Starry Night vibrates with burning yellow while planets
move around in circles like cartwheels. The hills tremble, and the
blue sky swirls.
