The Starry Night
GALLERY INTERACTIVE PROJECT
<b>Van Gogh</b> depicted the view at different times of day and under various weather conditions, including sunrise, moonrise, sunshine-filled days, overcast days, windy days.
The pictorial element uniting all of these paintings is the diagonal line coming in from the right depicting the low rolling hills of the Alpilles mountains.
Whitney also theorizes that the swirls in the sky could represent wind, evoking the mistral that had such a profound effect on <b>Van Gogh</b> during the twenty-seven months he spent in Provence.
