The painting I have picked is Vincent Van Gogh's The Starry Night, which was done on oil canvas, in 1889. I'm not really familiar with Van Gogh's work, but this is one piece of work of his that stands out to me. Vincent Van Gogh's Starry Night is an excellent painting in which Van Gogh paints a picture that is colorful and descriptive. This painting can be described as puzzling and fascinating. It can signify a variety of moods, objects, and atmosphere.
Artwork can be, and was, found around the whole world. What makes art interesting is that it can be created in any way, shape or form with any materials. It seems that the artwork can also tell us a lot about the artist. In this case, the artwork is abstract art because of the following reasons. For example if you look at the sky in this picture you can see how it is in a swirling motion, in real life you would not see this kind of thing happening.
In addition if you look at the stars in the sky they are unusually depicted making them look really big and bright, in real life you would not see stars like these unless your drunk or an asteroid was falling. Real stars are very small, not as bright as the ones in the painting and you could barely see them sometimes. Another way of telling that this painting is abstract art is by how bright of the light of the stars and moons are where they are almost lighting up the whole town. In real life the moon and stars could light up a town but not as bright as the one in the picture. In conclusion this painting has many different feelings, meaning a person could see it totally differently then how I saw this picture.
This piece of art had some things that were actually real life though, like the town and the big tree, moon and stars.
