Imagined village

Below the exploding stars is an imagined village. The church spire might have been inspired by Van Gogh's native land, the Netherlands.

Flaming tree

Connecting earth and sky is the flamelike cypress, a tree traditionally associated with graveyards and mourning.

Expressionist sky

Van Gogh's night sky is painting in his classic Expressionist style using intense colors.

Morning star

Van Gogh wrote to his brother Theo: "This morning I saw the country from my window a long time before sunrise, with nothing but the morning star, which looked very big." This morning star may be this large white star.

It's still life

Agostinho José da Mota pioneered outdoor painting from life in Brazil, much like the Impressionists did in Europe. He also excelled at these more domestic still lifes, though here you can also see clouds and sky in the distance.

Fantastic fruits!

This tasty platter includes a spiky jackfruit, juicy-looking pomegranate seeds, and some avocados. Tuck in!

Memento mori?

In Brazilian Portuguese, 'still life' paintings are referred to as 'natureza-morta', or 'dead nature', because life has been frozen dead in paint. Are the quickly-rotting fruits also a reminder of our mortality?
