Cursed and misunderstood artist, sensitive and tortured spirit, Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890) became a legend. Reputedly unclassifiable, he nevertheless belongs to the post-impressionist movement, just like his friend Paul Gauguin. With his vivid palette and his exalted touch, he also appears as a precursor of Fauvism and Expressionism while coming closer to Symbolism by his mystical conception of art. A tireless painter who died at the age of 37, he produced over 800 paintings. Combining reflections on form and color, Vincent Van Gogh's approach perfectly embodies the genius of modern art.
The Starry Night, 1889
"Often it seems to me that the night is even more richly colored than the day," wrote the painter. This night landscape was painted from the room Vincent Van Gogh occupied at the asylum in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. It is unique in its treatment of the sky, which occupies most of the canvas. The swirling movement of the air forms waves, and the stars sparkle like so many suns. The touch is fragmented, the colors are pure. The agitation of the sky contrasts with the tranquility of the sleeping village. Vincent Van Gogh expresses here his mystical vision of the world, in search of an invisible truth.
