Thur 15 Aug: Starry Night over The Rhone

  • 79 Australian dollars
  • 23 Hutton Street Osborne Park near the corner of Guthrie Street

Service Description

Ever since Van Gogh arrived in Arles, he was constantly preoccupied with the representation of "night effects". In April 1888, he wrote to his brother Theo: "I need a starry night with cypresses or maybe above a field of ripe wheat." In June, he confided to the painter Emile Bernard: "But when shall I ever paint the Starry Sky, this painting that keeps haunting me". Starry Night Over the Rhone (September 1888) was one of 3 paintings made during the same month that incorporate the night sky & stars as fundamentally symbolic elements. He also painted Cafe Terrace at Night, & a portrait of his friend Eugene Boch which was perhaps the most symbolic of the three. Starry Night Over the Rhone was painted at a spot on the banks of river which was only a minute or two's walk from The Yellow House on the Place Lamartine which Van Gogh was renting at the time. The night sky & the effects of light at night provided the subject for some of his more famous paintings, including The Starry Night, the most famous Van Gogh night stars painting. The challenge of painting at night intrigued Van Gogh. The vantage point he chose for "Starry Night Over the Rhone" allowed him to capture the reflections of the gas lighting in Arles across the glimmering blue water of the Rhone. In the foreground, two lovers stroll by the banks of the river. Here his stars glow with a luminescence, shining from the dark, blue and velvety night sky. Dotted along the banks of the Rhone houses also radiate a light that reflects in the water & adds to the mysterious atmosphere of the painting.
