Van Gogh Tote Bag - Starry Night
This cotton tote bag shows a part of the work of Van Gogh "Starry Night", displayed at the Musée d'Orsay.
The handles and the back of the bag continue the painting by using the colour of the night made by the famous painter.
From the moment of his arrival in Arles, on 8 February 1888, Van Gogh was constantly preoccupied with the representation of "night effects".
He first painted a corner of nocturnal sky in Cafe Terrace on the Place du Forum, Arles (Otterlo, Rijksmuseum Kröller-Muller). Next came this view of the Rhône in which he marvellously transcribed the colours he perceived in the dark. Blues prevail: Prussian blue, ultramarine and cobalt. The city gas lights glimmer an intense orange and are reflected in the water. The stars sparkle like gemstones.
