Van Gogh; ‘The Night is more richly coloured than the day’
Starry Night has been widely discussed and appreciated for it’s imaginative rendition of night, and of the spiritual power it seems to contain. Van Gogh himself said in his letters: ‘I absolutely must paint a starry night. It often seems to me that the night is even more richly coloured than the day. Coloured in purple
, the most intense blues
. When you look carefully you see that some stars are lemon coloured, others burn pink, green, blue, forget-me-not.’ Inspiring Theories It had long given art lovers and scientists cause for discussion, inspiring theories about what constellations in the sky Van Gogh was depicting. It now has also been used by NASA scientists to help understand the scientific theory of turbulence. Still to this day there is not a clear understanding of the theory, but Van Gogh’s work in the period, and especially this painting show waves of energy that are remarkably like how turbulence works and spreads in reality.
Starry Night, since 1941 has been on display in New York City, in the Museum of Modern Art
. It is literally seen by thousands of people daily, alongside the most famous works from this generation and the ones preceding. People have been known to spend hours in front of it, spellbound by it’s power and beauty. The work is even more impressive when you take into account Van Gogh’s mental state at the time: he had been suffering from extreme bouts of depression and was still recovering from mutilating his own ear.
Current value of Starry Night
It is impossible to give the work an accurate price tag today, though it would be said to easily be worth over $100 million if it was ever sold.
