The Starry Night painting was done by Van Gogh when he had been admitted in an asylum after a mental breakdown whereby, he was getting treatment. The painting was done using the oil in canvas technique. There are many objects and figures in the painting space with the cypress tree emerging from the bottom of the painting space and ending at the top of the painting touching the sky in a flame-like manner. There are also many houses in what appears to be a village with a church at the center of it.
