The style of the painting is unique to Van Gogh with warm colors and depth of perspective. This is the first example of Van Gogh using star filled backgrounds in his work. He went on to paint such night skies in Starry Night Over Rhone, painted the same month, and the better known Starry Night a year later.

Known as a prolific Post-Impressionist, he produced many paintings that were heavily biographical. This work of art has the same emotions and beauty as the original by Van Gogh.
