The fame of this painting is not only from the technique used or
its beauty but also from the mysteries that surround it. Like
who is the subject and why is she smiling? Her enigmatic smile
has seduced people for centuries. In addition, the theft in 1911,
the reproductions made, the numerous works of art inspired by
the painting, and the existing parodies all contribute to making
it the best art of all time.
This masterpiece was painted by Van Gogh in 1889 in the
Saint-Rémy Asylum, where he was imprisoned towards the end
of his life. Indeed, the canvas seems to reflect his tumultuous
post-impressionist authorial state at the time, when the night
sky comes to life with swirls and orbs of frantically applied
brushwork, springing from the good and evil of his personal
demons and his astonishment at nature.
