Painting Starry Night Starry Night was painted in 1889 by the infamous Vincent Van Gogh, a Dutch post-Impressionist painter who cut off his left ear, wrapped it in newspaper and handed it to a prostitute (and you thought your Friday night was wild). The painting supposedly depicts the view from Van Gogh’s sanitorium room window in Southern France. He may have been a wee bit eccentric (ok, nuts), but the man certainly had a feel for color. The bold, cool color palette that occupies most of the canvas is nicely violated with the intense, warm tones of the lights and stars.
