Vincent van Gogh, 1989, The Starry Night is a painting that many people are familiar with. To some people the painting would radiate a sense of ease and comfort. Maybe it is because of the swirl of the wave-like clouds or the bright stars that twinkle in the dark blue night sky that gives people a sense of peace. The part of the painting that seemed to be most intriguing is the black like flames that seemed to reach towards the bright night sky that people tend to avoid in the painting. Though many people would find the painting to be beautiful and calming, but there seemed to lie a deeper meaning behind The Starry Night. van Gogh’s other paintings like, 1890, At Eternity’s Gate and, 1882, Sorrow have a similar emotional meaning in comparison
