The Starry Night (Dutch: De sterrennacht) is a painting by Dutch post-impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh. The painting depicts the view outside his sanitarium room window at night, although it was painted from memory during the day. Since 1941 it has been in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Reproduced often, the painting is widely hailed as his magnum opus.
In September 1888, while van Gogh was staying in Arles, he executed a painting commonly known as Starry Night Over the Rhone and later he incorporated a pen drawing in a set of a dozen based on recent paintings. Van Gogh claimed to have a “terrible need for religion” when he painted Starry Night Over the Rhone.
In mid-September 1889, following a heavy crisis which lasted from mid-July to the last days of August, he thought to include this “Study of the Night” in the next batch of works to be sent to his brother, Theo, in Paris. In order to reduce the shipping costs, he withheld three of the studies (“above-mentioned – Poppies – Night Effect – Moonrise”). These three went to Paris with the shipment to follow. As Theo did not immediately report its arrival, Vincent inquired again, and finally received Theo’s commentary on his recent work.

The The Huffington Post recently had an article in their HuffPost Arts section talking about MOCA | The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles’s latest art exhibition entitled “Art in the Streets”. The article went on to talk about how the show has attracted unwanted street art to the area. This was Street Artist Eddie’s response…….classic.
