More About van Gogh’s Starry Night
Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh has been considered his masterpiece of masterpieces. Not just for the beauty and the details of the painting but for the symbolism that the painting tries to convey.
Van Gogh painted this artwork when he was admitted in one of the mental asylums is St. Remy-de-Provence and his state of mind had put him in an exhausting condition.
In the first glance, the painting also looks like the work of a genius mind gone frenzy, but on closer inspection, all the elements start making sense.
The details of the work are not just random spiral and waves, in fact, each piece carries a significance. The spirals, that were considered as a metaphor of his troubled mind were rather shapes of nebulous on a starry night.
The sky, that has been of particular interest to aesthetes and art students, had slowly become Van Gogh’s religion. He found solace in painting the skies, and according to him, the sky freed him from his own mind.
What’s captivating was the Moon and size of particularly one star that Van Gogh paints in Starry Night. It looked almost unreal but after a considerable amount research, there indeed was a time in the spring of 1889, when the Venus came too close to earth.
The appearance of an unsually big star was in fact the depiction of Venus. Even skilfull is the way the artificial light of the moon that falls on the spirals in the sky.
However, the light remains in the sky keeping the entire village dark with a hint of gloom.
The town was a recreation of what Van Gogh thought it would look like from the higher windows of the building. The spiral from the sky that has been brought down gives a little action to the painting making it look as if it is moving,
While the cypress is itself a symbol of death. And while Van Gogh was inquisitve about life beyond death, he believed that the emerging, raging cypress was the only way to cross over and know the unknown.
The entire painting was less about the sky that mirrored his tortured mind and more about his interest in astronomy and life beyond death.
What people seem as a painting created our of doom was in fact a happy painting, something that ignited a flame in his heart.
