About Starry Night Jacquard Pillow – Vincent Van Gogh – Musart on Pillows
This Vincent Van Gogh Starry Night Jacquard Pillow is part of our original collection, Musart on Pillows. Jacquard weaving consists of the interweaving of two kinds of yarn: warp threads (10,500 threads in 100% cotton) and weft threads (cotton, wool, linen). This extremely precise technique makes it possible to interweave around 80 threads / cm². This technique results in obtaining a point of great finesse, it also allows to use a multitude of colors. Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” found at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, displays his painting of a night view of his room window while voluntarily interned at an Asylum at Saint-Rémy-de-Provenance for around a year prior to his death after a self-mutilation episode. Van Gogh explains his inspiration for “Starry Night” in a letter written to his brother Theo: “This morning I saw the countryside from my window a long time before sunrise, with nothing but the morning star, which looked very big.” Intertwining observation and imagination Van Gogh was able to produce Starry Night, one of the most notorious works in his artistic career, and one of the most iconic works in the history of art. The piece, according to art historian Meyer Shapiro, was created under the “pressure of feeling” and that the painting is “visionary…inspired by a religious mood.” Indeed, the solemn and meditative qualities of The Starry Night are considerable. Not only this, however, but the painting’s almost hallucinatory character are extremely expressive, and this blend of chaos and stillness is one of the most compelling aspects of the piece. It has also been described as a highly religious painting, involving van Gogh’s deeply spiritual and personal reflections on his religion as a whole.
