Vincent Van Gogh was a Dutch painter in the 19th century whose pioneering techniques greatly influenced the world of post-Impressionist art. His most popular painting is undoubtedly Starry Night, a majestic, sweeping, and somewhat abstract depiction of a village at night. While the village itself is somewhat tame, the night sky, with its sweeping, entrancing swirls, casts a dreamlike spell over many who view it.

Vincent Van Gogh is considered one of the leading figures in the post-Impressionist movement that ran from 1886-1905. This movement emphasized unnatural geometric forms, symbolism, and heavy applications of paint. Starry Night is a quintessential post-Impressionist work in that it depicts an ordinary scene, namely a village at night, and gives it a surreal, dreamlike quality. Rather than evoking reality, it calls to mind a sense of mystery and awe and reminds us of the different ways we can view the world around us.

In reality, fewer people were present at this meeting, but Trumbull believed his version heightened the drama and significance of the moment.
