Starry Night over the Rhone

I chose Starry Night over the Rhone because it is one of my favorite paintings by Vincent van Gogh.  The painting was completed in 1888.  The medium is oil on canvas and the size is 72.5 by 92 cm.  It is located at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris, France.  His color choices are realistic to what the landscape would look like at night.  I like the big brushstrokes he uses.  Van Gogh does a good job with portraying the reflection of the streetlights on the water.  He also does a nice job of making the stars look like they are glowing.
