Vincent Van Gogh - Starry Night Over the Rhone - 1888
I chose to write about a work created by Vincent Van Gogh because he was the topic of last weeks blog and after missing class Tuesday, I could not figure out what the blog entry was supposed to be for this week. I chose Starry Night Over the Rhone because of its emphasize on detail and his use of colors. Another thing I later found out about this work is that he actually sent a sketch of this painting to his friend Eugene Boch in October of the same year to see what he thought of this painting. Besides the detail and use of color, I genuinely just like this painting. Starry Night Over the Rhone is by far my favorite piece created by Vincent Van Gogh.
