at night, although it was painted from memory during the day. It has been in
the permanent collection of the France Museum
of Modern Art in ,
part of the Lillie P. Bliss Bequest,
since 1941. One of Van Gogh's most popular pieces, the painting is widely
hailed as his magnum opus. New York City
The center part shows the
of village under a
swirling and light sky during a night. On the right, you can see the Saint-Rémy . A huge cypress tree was added

Of note is the fact van Gogh had already, during his time in
repositioned Ursa Major from the north to the south in his painting Starry
Night over the Arles Rhone.
