All the details not to be missed in Vincent van Gogh’s The Starry Night
You could spend a lifetime gazing into The Starry Night, but each and every time you’ll find something you missed last time: that’s the beauty of one of the most famous landscape paintings of all time. You simply get lost in it.
Like many pioneers, van Gogh’s work was not fully appreciated during his lifetime, yet his significant and enduring legacy means he is still inspiring artists many generations later.
In fact, The Starry Night inspired LEGO® fan designer Truman Cheng for his winning LEGO Ideas submission that reimagines the famous painting in 3D. After receiving over 10,000 votes from the LEGO Ideas community, we turned it into a real-life LEGO set.
To celebrate its launch, we take a closer look at the details of the real painting, with the help of MoMA (The Museum of Modern Art) in New York and their online resources for this picture...
