"Starstruck"

A woman stops to admire Vincent Van Gogh's famous 1889 painting The Starry Night.  The Starry Night depicts a dreamy interpretation of the view from Van Gogh's room in the asylum in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence where he was recovering from mental illness. Though Van Gogh revisited this scene in his work 21 times, Starry Night is the only nocturnal study of the view.  In a letter to his brother Theo, the artist wrote that he felt the painting was a failure.  The painting hangs at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
