In this painting Van Gogh is addressing philosophies on life and death. The cypress tree is a symbol that represents eternal life and death. Additionally, the brightest start in this sky is actually the planet Venus which is traditionally a symbol for love. It is believed that Van Gogh may have been trying to represent his desire and hope to gain love in death because it eluded him in life.
