Vincent Van Gogh - Starry Night over the Rhone - 3D Lenticular Postcard Greeting Card
4x6 inches - In clear protective reusable sleeve
Starry Night Over the Rhone, painted months before Vincent van Gogh's self-hospitalization, represents what some scholars consider to be the pinnacle of van Gogh's artistic creation. The stunning 1888 oil was one of van Gogh's three major paintings to include his now-instantly recognizable night sky, full of swirling aquamarines and luminous stars. Painted along the banks of the Rhone in Arles, where the artist was living at the time, van Gogh included two small figures in the foreground that are often overlooked. In a letter to his brother Theo, van Gogh identifies these figures as lovers; he also identifies Ursa Major as "the Great Bear" in the sky, despite the fact that, in reality, the painting faces away from the constellation. This beautiful night scene, with views of the quay and its gas lamps and small boats on the river, now resides in the Musee d'Orsay in Paris, and is one of van Gogh's most beloved canvases.
