More about Starry Night
It was painted in the productive period when Vincent was in the asylum after cutting off his left ear. He had worked on it the daytime in early June 1889, inspired by the view from his window. He had written to his brother, Theo (an art dealer): “Through the iron-barred window I can see an enclosed square of wheat . . . above which, in the morning, I watch the sun rise in all its glory.”
Vincent had been wanting to paint using contrasting colors, in particular a nighttime scene. The result is the richly textured and altogether wonderful Starry Night painting. At the time, neither Vincent nor his art dealer brother Theo thought much of the painting. History has shown that they were very wrong on this occasion!
The painting has been in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City since 1941.
