Dimensions: 47" x 35.5" Paper and Image

A night lit by glowing stars and the crescent moon. Winds curl over a small town. A green tree towers next to the town.

Generally considered the greatest Dutch painter after Rembrandt, van Gogh's striking and exuberant paintings were all produced during a period of only ten years. His Post-Impressionist work hauntingly conveyed through forceful color, aggressive brushwork and contoured forms, the anguish of a mental illness that eventually resulted in suicide. After his death, van Gogh's powerful compositions and expressive use of color greatly influenced Expressionism.
