Starry Starry Night Critique

Starry Starry Night was painted by the unforgotten Vincent Van Gogh. This piece of art was painted in 1889 while VIncent Van Gogh was in France. It is around 73 by 92 cm big, about the same size as the Sunflowers painting.

Shining gold stars are painted onto the blue exaggerated sky. Blue is the main colour. Glowing yellow spots stand out from the dark purple village.

In the foreground, the bold brushstrokes make the tall curving cypress tree look like it’s moving. Almost like a flame. The church, houses, hills and much more are also in the background.

There are many objects in this painting. Two objects that I noticed that stand out, are the cypress tree and the church. I think they stand out because they both have a tall point.

This is one of Van Gogh’s many famous paintings and it is very nice. In fact, this is one of the most famous paintings he has done. If I had enough money, I would probably buy this painting but I think this won’t happen.

  1. This is indeed an interesting painting with everything looking like they are moving; the tree, the sky, the hills. (Plus I like blue) I can't wait to see pictures of any paintings that you may produce this term :-)
