We have had several inquiries recently about the paintings described in the first stanza of Don McLean’s hit song “Vincent.” The Van Gogh Gallery has a Starry, Starry Night page that breaks down the lyrics and names paintings that are referenced in the song. However, we have not broken down the song line by line and associated each with a particular painting. With almost 900 paintings in Van Gogh’s collection, it may be hard to say which paintings, if any in particular, are being referred to specifically in the song. If you would like to offer your ideas on which paintings are being referred to, you can access the complete Van Gogh Catalog on the Van Gogh Gallery, or view the interactive Van Gogh Book which chronicles some of Van Gogh’s most famous paintings. We would like to thank Unidev for doing the custom software development for these sections of the site. After you have had a chance to view his vast collection, please feel free to comment with your thoughts on which paintings you think best match the lyrics.
