The art work chosen for this part is “The Starry Night”, an “Oil on Canvas” painting painted by the famous Dutch, post- Impressionist, painter “Vincent van Gogh” in 1889 (The Starry Night n.d). This painting is available to viewers in the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). An online view is also available at the “Google Art Projects” website. The art work, like other works of Vincent Van Gogh, has roughly used bold colors. The painting is the view of the village Saint-Rémy-de-Provence of France through the window of sanitarium.

The artist, Vincent Van Gogh painted this painting from his memory of an early morning in the Asylum in France. The Starry Night is the view of the painters' inner thought. The painter thinks that the village is under a death silence and the stars in the sky are the souls of the passed one's. The tree that is going up in the sky shows a relation or a path for the souls to be the stars. The painting shows the central part of the village Saint-Rémy-de-Provence in the night. The cypress tree is added to give a religious look to the painting.
