THE STARRY NIGHT by Vincent Van Gogh

What makes Van Gogh’s The Starry Night painting so unique? What is the message behind it? I shared with you a post about my experience of Van Gogh’s immersive exhibition in Miami, where The Starry Night and other of his masterworks were presented.

There are many reasons why people go to a museum. Some go to see their favorite artist’s paintings, others to get educated, and some just as a date. What makes this Post-Impressionist painting so spectacular yet still a piece that everyone can enjoy at the Museum of Modern Art in New York?

In this presentation, we will look at some historical, symbolic, and artistic aspects that have made this painting so special.
