Transcript of Critiquing Art: Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh

History Of Starry Night
Starry Night
Starry Night is considered one of the most complex but beautiful paintings ever. The lines are curved and broken at the same time. You can see the bold brush work. The bright, vivid colours of the stars contrast with the dark tones of the night sky. There is a lot of rhythym in the painting, but there is no repetition. Vincent Van Gogh uses the elements to capture the viewers attention. He does this by making the stars very big, and bright so it's the first thing that you will notice. The Starry Night is painted on a flat surface (2-D).

Critiquing Art: Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh
By: Natalie and Andriy
Starry Night was painted in 1889. It is the view from Van Gogh's window in the asylum he was in kept in his final years. Starry Night is just one of the many variations of the same painting Van Gogh did. One of the most famous variations includes Starry Night Over The Rhone.
The best part of Starry Night Is the way all of the colours blend together to create the night sky. The strength of the work is how it stands out. If it were to be put in a room with other paintings, it would immediately stand out. The weakness of the piece is that it was never really appreciated during its time, because it was considered different from the other art pieces of its time. The artist communicates to us through the colours and how peaceful everything looks. I like this painting because of how all of it works, the colours, the rhythm, and the view. I would most definitely hang this painting in my room.
In this painting you see a
small village with a castle in
the middle followed by a sky
covered in stars. In the background you can see some mediocre sized hills. In this painting everything is calm and nothing is really happening. This painting gives off a medieval vibe because of the castle. Nowadays we don't see many castles in use.
I think the artist wants us to see how life was like before technology.This painting also reminds me of the story of Dracula and Transylvania. There were many other calm things he could've drew like water with no ripple and etc. but he chose the night sky because he might've been fascinated by astronomy.
