This is a fine art giclee print of a painting by legendary artist Vincent Van Gogh entitled 'Starry Night over the Rhone' painted in 1888. Starry Night over the Rhone is one of Vincent van Gogh's more popular paintings of Arles at night. The location of this particular spot was less than a mile from the Yellow House on the Place Lamartine where Van Gogh was renting at the time. Sine painting at night was more challenging it intrigued Va Gogh. He carefully chose the location for the Starry Night over the Rhone which captured the reflections of the gas lighting in Arles across the glimmering blue water of the Rhône. The sky is illuminated by the constellation Ursa Major (the Great Bear). In the foreground, two lovers stroll by the banks of the river. Depicting color was of great importance to Van Gogh. In letters to his brother, Theo van Gogh, he often described objects in his paintings in terms of color. His night paintings, including Starry Night over the Rhone, emphasize the importance he placed in capturing the sparkling colors of the night sky and the artificial lighting that was new to this period.
