Vincent van Gogh, an artist from Holland, innovated what we know today as post-Impressionism works. His paintings in his early life contained lots of dark colors and dim scenes. When he became interested in impressionism his work took on a lighter more vibrant look. He did more landscapes with flowers and fields. In The Starry Night van Gogh shows off these tasteful views of art that impressionists have. He gave the moon and stars very vibrant outlines and did the landscape in a bright blue.
