About this item
Own a piece of history with a hand-painted reproduction of this famous artwork. Why settle for prints when you can have the next best thing to the original?
The original masterpiece was created in 1889. Today it has been carefully recreated detail-by-detail, color-by-color to near perfection. Why settle for a print when you can add sophistication to your rooms with a beautiful fine gallery reproduction oil painting? Starry Night Over Rhone is one of Vincent van Gogh's paintings of Arles at night; it was painted on the banks of the Ronne River. The night sky and the effects of light at night provided the subject for some of his more famous paintings, including Cafe Terrace at Night and the later canvas from Saint-Remy, Starry Night. The challenge of painting at night intrigued Van Gogh. The point of view he chose for Starry Night Over Rhone allowed him to capture the reflections of the gas lighting in Arles across the glimmering blue water of the Rhone. The sky is illuminated and in the foreground, two lovers stroll by the banks of the river. Vincent Van Gogh's restless spirit and depressive mental state fired his artistic work with great joy and, sadly, equally great despair. 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. Why not grace your home with this reproduced masterpiece? It is sure to bring many admirers!
