Vincent van Gogh (1853 - 1890)
Wheat Field with Cypresses (1889)
oil on canvas (93 ร— 73 cm)

A Wheatfield with Cypresses (occasionally called A Cornfield with Cypresses) is any of three similar 1889 oil paintings by Vincent van Gogh, as part of his wheat field series. All were executed at the Saint-Paul-de-Mausole mental asylum at Saint-Rรฉmy near Arles, France, where Van Gogh was voluntarily a patient from May 1889 to May 1890. The works were inspired by the view from the window at the asylum towards the Alpilles mountains.

Starry Night Over the Rhone (1888)

Van Gogh was a master at expressing emotion through the use of creative color combinations, staccato brush strokes, and changes to the shapes of his subjects. This is one of Vincent van Gogh's most famous paintings of Arles at night. The challenge of painting at night intrigued van Gogh. The vantage point he chose allowed him to capture the reflections of the gas lighting in Arles across the glimmering blue water of the Rhรดne. In the foreground, two lovers stroll by the banks of the river.

Starry Night II (1922/1924)
Edvard Munch (1863 - 1844)
oil on canvas (119 x 140 cm)

A recognized forerunner of Expressionism, Norwegian painter and printmaker Edvard Munch is renowned for his representations of emotion, often anguish and anxiety. After 1900 he returned to nature for inspiration. He visited several exhibitions where Van Goghโ€™s paintings were shown becoming deeply influenced on a technical and compositional level. In this painting there is a singular effort at creating a drama with the presence of figures unseen within the picturesque quality of the snowscape. Munch's setting is the beach at Aasgaardstrand in the Oslo Fjord, where he had spent his summers since the late 1880s.

Strongly influenced by his experiences as a young man, he developed a signature style during his early years as an artist that involved the use of extremely dark, essentially black figures. These images represent his perspective of African Americans with separate and distinct inner and outer appearances. He has said, "Black people occupy a space, even mundane spaces, in the most fascinating ways. Style is such an integral part of what black people do that just walking is not a simple thing. You've got to walk with style. You've got to talk with a certain rhythm; you've got to do things with some flair. And so in the paintings I try to enact that same tendency toward the theatrical that seems to be so integral a part of the black cultural body."

Degas produced paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints and above all pastels, which he brought to its highest degree of achievement.At the beginning of his career, Degas wanted to be a history painter, a calling for which he was well prepared by his rigorous academic training and close study of classic art. In his early thirties, he changed course, and by bringing the traditional methods of a history painter to bear on contemporary subject matter, he became a classical painter of modern life.
