Vincent van Gogh Starry Nights Stole
This stole is inspired by three works by Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890).
From his arrival in Arles in 1888, Van Gogh researched the way to represent "the effects of night".
To his brother Theo: "I need a starry night..."; to his sister "Often it seems to me that the night is more colorful that the day".
But it was to the painter Emile Bernard that he confided "But when, then, would I make this Starry sky, this painting that always troubles me?"
The little corner of sky represented in The Café Terrace at Night in Arles, becomes in Starry Night, in Arles on the Rhône and Starry Night, in Saint-Rémy de Provence, the principal part of the painting, wher blues dominate, lit by the yellow-green of the stars.
