My impression of their work in miniature paintings within the painting.

I really went the whole route with this one trying to do as much detail as I could.
I had a great time painting it and imagining being there with Vincent.
I love him, his style and studying him and how he worked.
I've included here the beautiful video and song Starry Starry Night. I hope you enjoy seeing all his magnificent paintings.

Titles to Van Gogh's Paintings within this Painting


The Café Terrace on the Place du Forum, Arles, at Night, c.1888

Vincent Van Gogh’s “Café Terrace” is the first of three paintings in which he depicts a star-filled sky. Van Gogh (1853 – 1890), a post-Impressionist Master, exquisitely captures the subtleties of natural night time light with blues, violets, greens and an absence of black. Tormented by severe depression for most of his life, and dying a young death, Van Gogh was driven by his devotion to his art, and his quest to find a niche in the world. More than 100 years later, to commemorate his painting, the Café Terrace, renamed Café Van Gogh, is now painted in the exact tones as it appears in his masterpiece.

Vincent Van Gogh (1853 – 1890) was a Dutch post-Impressionist Master whose innovative artwork powerfully influenced modern Expressionism, Fauvism, and early abstraction. Astoundingly prolific, Van Gogh produced all of his work during a 10-year period, at one point, creating 150 paintings and drawings within one year. Painting outdoors, Van Gogh uniquely captured the nighttime nuances of light and shadow, and was also renowned for his paintings of sunflowers and irises. Tormented by mental illness for most of his life, Van Gogh created many of his masterpieces while he was institutionalized. Although Van Gogh only sold one painting during his lifetime, he is now regarded as one of the most profoundly influential artists of the 19th century.
