If you’ve ever wondered about the inspiration behind the famous Van Gogh Starry Night painting, then you’ve come to the right place. This video will discuss Van Gogh’s ambivalent relationship with working from his imagination. The painting is still an excellent example of how to express yourself through art.
Many consider Van Gogh’s Starry Night painting to be his finest work. Painted primarily from memory, it emphasizes the emotional life of the artist. It’s also notable because it departs from his usual naturalistic landscapes, following strict compositional principles. By using the exact placement of forms and cypress trees, he created balance and tension in the painting. The painting is a masterwork of contrasts, highlighting lines and curves.
The artist’s inspiration came from the principle of contrast and a long-lost model, Eugene Delacroix. In The Starry Night, Van Gogh used his favorite colour, yellow, to create a more vivid contrast between the bright sky and the dark, gloomy village in the background. As a Christian, he was particularly inspired by the architecture of Dutch churches, which made this work even more striking.
Although his works were not widely successful in their time, his famous Starry Night painting became widely popular after his death. Its popularity helped make him a legend in the art world and his work has become a cultural icon in the 21st century. Despite his struggles as a mental patient, his paintings are still very popular.
