Starry Night over the Rhone Oil Painting Reproduction
The painting was first displayed at an annual exhibition of the Society of Independent Artists in Paris in 1889. It was one of a few works by van Gogh that was shown publicly before his death.
The artist was intrigued by the challenges of painting at night and depicting night, which he considered more colorful than it seemed. “Night effects” agitated him, and became something that he was eager to represent in his art.
The masterpiece was painted not far from the House on the Place Lamartine, where the artist lived before he relocating to the Saint-Paul-de-Mausole asylum to rest from his emotional suffering.
The night sky, the gaslighting, and the blue water of the Rhone was masterfully captured by van Gogh.
Starry Night over the Rhone oil painting was created by Vincent van Gogh nine months before his more famous Starry Night, in 1888. Since 1975, the artwork’s home has been in the Musée d’Orsay in Paris.
