Did You Know?

Researchers have determined that the planet Venus was visible at dawn in Provence in the spring of 1889, and was at that time nearly as bright as possible. The brightest "star" in the painting, just to the viewer's right of the

cypress tree, is actually Venus.

" This morning I saw the countryside from my

window a long time before sunrise with nothing

but the morning star, which looked very big"

You can admire The Starry Night at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Starry Night over the Rhône, 1888

Van Gogh's Starry Night from 1889  wasn't his first: he had painted another Starry Night a year earlier in 1888. Starry Night Over the Rhône was painted on the bank of the Rhône that was only a one or two-minute walk from the Yellow House on the Place Lamartine, which Van Gogh was renting at the time.

If you look carefully in the sky, you will see t he seven stars of the Big

Dipper in the constellation Ursa Major , also known as the Great Bear.

This painting is in the collection of the Musée d'Orsay in Paris.
