The Starry Night

The Starry Night was painted in June 1889, and the artwork describes the view from the window of Vincent's asylum room at Saint-Remy-de-Provence. The Starry Night is claimed as the most recognized painting in Western cultural history.

The masterpieces' beauty is timeless and universal. While being in the hospital, Vincent had too much freedom. He was allowed to go outside to paint and read. Vincent was suffering from multiple mental illnesses, and he had thoughts of suicide while being in depression. By the time Vincent returned to his dark colors and the Starry Night is the perfect example of that. Blue is the dominant color in the painting, and each building is clearly outlined in black. "The Starry Night" represents Vincent van Gogh's emotional condition while being at Asylum.

"The Starry Night" may be about mortality, and the painter represents his inner thought by that painting.
