THREE WAYS OF PRESENTING “A STARRY NIGHT” – ORIGINALLY PAINTED BY VINCENT VAN GOGH

< Dutch Post-Impressionist, Vincent van Gogh and his oil-on-canvas, captures two lovers and “A Starry Night Over The Rhône”. The view is from the quay on the east side of the river.> The piece features short, painterly brushstrokes, a colour palette, and a focus on luminescence. This treatment helps explain why it’s so famous and, for the public, a fine piece of art. It resides in the Musée d’Orsay in Paris. Another “Starry Night” has received plenty of attention, especially by viewers from Toronto and other parts of Canada. The CN Tower occupies the left side of the painting, along with a row of Downtown skyscrapers. And yes, the star giant swirls are very much there too. Ted Hamer, a Toronto artist, designed his “Starry Night” originals in a more modern style.
