Starry Night

Starry Night, painted by Vincent van Gogh in 1889, depicts the view outside the window of his sanatorium at Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, where he was being treated after a breakdown and severe depression. As this is an extremely well known and popular artwork, it has been depicted in LEGO form many times.
