De sterrennacht

..this might be the last of the MoMA series, most of the images i have are just some random snaps just worth a flickr photodump perhaps.. as elaine mentioned, i don’t want to post a picture of a picture, that’s kinda boring IMO.. and some of you were wondering how i was able to get snaps of these works of art, well, i guess if you don’t use your flash then all’s good.. now, on to the image.. that’s van gogh’s starry night..

The Starry Night is a painting by Dutch post-impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh. The painting depicts the view outside his sanitarium room window at night, although it was painted from memory during the day. Since 1941 it has been in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Reproduced often, the painting is widely hailed as his magnum opus. (more)

It’s a lovely take on a famous work of art, Rian. My 9-year-old g’son is with me right now and he just looked at this and knew what it was. He said it was one of the first things they learned in 4th grade this year. It amazed me!

Another nice one. I would personally rather silhouettes here and I’ll tell you why… when I first saw this, it reminded me of Mystery Science Theater 3000! I loved that show.

I’m always surprised they have pictures like this one at arms length.

thanks.. 🙂 i’m not familiar with MST3K but saw a short clip of it just now and i see what you mean.. ;D and yep, these works of art are awesome.. i never thought i’d see a famous work of art face to face, and it does feel different as compared to looking at it from the pages of a book or the tv…

I hope you took some time to just enjoy this work of art. Very few pieces of art moved me the way this one did. It is magical and other-worldly. Of course, I like your pic too!

This is where everyone says Oooo… and Ahhhh…. over the painting:-) Neat capture with the people taking shots. I’m surprised they let cameras in there. BTW, I do like the painting.

this is a funny image. makes it feel like a lot of people photograph this painting – which is a little bit crazy – reproductions of it are everywhere – when you see the real thing why not just enjoy it. so your image feels like a bit of social commentary. certainly more than just a picture of picture.
