Iconic Van Gogh ~ 'Starry Night' (1889) depicts the view outside Van gogh's sanitorium room window at Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, at night. Made even more famous by singer, Don McLean's 1971 song, 'Vincent' (Starry, Starry Night). I've seen the original ~ these stars throb with energy!
I saw a real life rendition of this painting at the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam; the replica was quite accurate... it was creepy how accurate it was. Pretty neat experience because it felt like you were actually in his room!
