The Starry Night cross stitch pattern is a replica of one of the world’s most famous oil paintings by Vincent Van Gogh. The painting is currently on display at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York City, USA.
It’s hard not to love this gorgeous painting of an excited and energetic night sky. And we are thrilled to recreate the artist’s amazing brushstrokes in varying shades of royal, navy, cornflower, antique and baby blue. Perfect for the DMC palette.
Here’s a little bit about the painting from the MoMA website — we know you’ll be wanting to talk knowledgeably about this painting when your family and friends comment on your amazing thread-work.
Van Gogh assigned an emotional language to night and nature that took them far from their actual appearances. Dominated by vivid blues and yellows applied with gestural verve and immediacy, The Starry Night also demonstrates how inseparable van Gogh’s vision was from the new procedures of painting he had devised, in which color and paint describe a world outside the artwork even as they telegraph their own status as, merely, color and paint.
