Road with Cypress and Star Oil Replica on Canvas

Road with Cypress and Star is a painting which clearly shows Van Gogh’s love for nature. Short, swirling brush strokes, highly contrasting colors and a looming cypress tree- all these details are perfectly captured in our rendition of this iconic painting.

Our artists studied Van Gogh, his thought processes, his technique and flair, in great detail before starting out the replication. Their talent is immeasurable, with the replicas being so close to the original that many art enthusiasts and collectors would be left baffled, upon a cursory glance.

Road with Cypress and Star Explained by Van Gogh

The painting is also known as “Country Road in Provence by Night”. Van Gogh painted Road with Cypress and Star in Provence, his last before he left the asylum he was in.

He was very fascinated by Cypress trees and wanted to use them in his art. He thought them beautiful with regard to lines and proportions, like an Egyptian obelisk. He also thought the green had a distinguished quality. The painting is divided in half by a Cypress tree that is so tall, it extends out of the painting.

Van Gogh, described the painting as follows: “A night sky with a moon without radiance, the slender crescent barely emerging from the opaque shadow cast by the earth. One star with an exaggerated brilliance, if you like, a soft brilliance of pink and green in the ultramarine sky, across which some clouds are hurrying.

Below, a road bordered with tall yellow canes, behind these the blue Basses Alpes, an old inn with yellow lighted windows, and a very tall cypress, very straight, very sombre. On the road, a yellow cart with a white horse in harness, and two late wayfarers. Very romantic, if you like, but also Provence, I think.”

About the Painting

An analysis of Road with Cypress and Star, points towards a number of “typically-Van Gogh” sentiments. Experts say that through this painting, Van Gogh was trying to share his feelings that his death was imminent.

Set during twilight, with the luminescent star on one side of the Cypress (the obelisk of death) and the newly formed, not very bright moon on the other side, Van Gogh was trying to lay emphasis on his belief in rebirth and renewal. It was all about his notion of eternity and life after death.

The wandering wayfarers and the horse drawn carriage following in pursuit, as per experts, indicate Van Gogh’s longing for companionship and love.
