The thirty seventh offering in our ART WALK Series features a painting by Vincent Van Gogh entitled "Starry Night". We have featured this piece in the past but as our dyers become more skilled in the dye studio, we are offering it again but with a keener eye to the colourations seen in the painting! Maybe you didn't realize there was red in the painting? If you look closely, it's not just blue and yellow but red is a definite undertone in this work! Welcome to our first reshowing of past colourways with a new flavour of colour!
Vincent Van Gogh (1853 – 1890) was a Dutch post-Impressionist Master whose innovative artwork powerfully influenced modern Expressionism, Fauvism, and early abstraction. Astoundingly prolific, Van Gogh produced all of his work during a 10-year period, at one point, creating 150 paintings and drawings within one year. Painting outdoors, Van Gogh uniquely captured the nighttime nuances of light and shadow, and was also renowned for his paintings of sunflowers and irises. Tormented by mental illness for most of his life, Van Gogh created many of his masterpieces while he was institutionalized. Although Van Gogh only sold one painting during his lifetime, he is now regarded as one of the most profoundly influential artists of the 19th century. [quoted from Art.com]
