Description:
Whilst in the asylum of St. Remy, the clinic and its garden became the main subjects of his paintings. Some of the work from this time is characterized by swirls — including what is, many consider his Magum Opus, 'The Starry Night'. The painting depicts the view outside his sanitarium room window at night, although it was painted from memory during the day. The center part shows the village of St. Remy under a swirling sky, towards the North. The Alpilles far to the right fit to this view. A cypress tree to the left, which he seemed to love so much, was added into the composition. Of note is the fact van Gogh had already, during his time in Arles, repositioned Ursa Major from the North to the South, in his painting 'Starry Night Over the Rhone'. Though this is perhaps his best known and loved work, Van Gogh considered the image to be one of his less successful renditions of nature. In his opinion, it was just not realistic enough. Nevertheless, it is precisely this aspect of the work that has such wide appeal. What admirers almost unanimously feel, is its unearthly visionary quality. The painting may not be a naturalistic representation of the Provencal countryside, but its rhythmically swirling forms and bold patterns clearly point the way towards the 20th century art forms of abstraction, and certainly Expressionism.

This is a Serigraph
You are viewing a Serigraph print. Fine artists create serigraphs in limited runs by applying layer upon layer of pigment to the print surface by pressing it through a mesh screen containing a stencil. The complex and lengthy process commonly uses inks for pigment and stencils made of a variety of materials. Because of the nature of the process each serigraph is unique.
This is a Giclee
You are viewing a giclee print. Each piece was created by a special process called "Giclee". Giclee is a computer generated print that is produced by the spraying of an image on to fine art paper. The inks used are specially formulated so that the fine print heads can spurt jets of ink in minute droplets. When prints are produced on fine art quality paper, the print should posses archival standards of permanence comparable or better than other collectible work.
This is a Hand Colored Print
You are viewing a hand colored print. The process begins with hand-pulled black & white decorative and antique reproduction prints. Each print is then individually designed and hand colored using the same methods of color application that were used throughout the 19th century, before modern color lithography. Individual artists meticulously paint each piece using the finest European watercolor paints on heavy mat, acid free, archival paper resistant to deterioration and discoloration. By combining old world craftsmanship with fresh design innovations, our artists create works of stunning depth and vibrancy that are absolutely beautiful and unique.
This is a Museum Quality Fine Art Print
You are viewing a museum quality fine-art print. The prints we carry are produced using either the lithographic or serigraphic printing process and are printed on high quality archival acid free paper. Most prints are on a thick (120 pound or higher) stock of paper. Each print is of the highest museum art print reproduction quality and are supplied by the world's leading art publishers. These prints rival any detailed reproduction from their originals and are geared towards the discerning eye of the particular art collector.
This is a Limited Edition
Limited editions are a series of identical prints, which are limited to a one-time printing of a certain number of pieces. The artist determines the size of the edition, and usually signs and numbers each individual piece. Limited edition prints framed by the Fulcrum Gallery are handled separately and given the utmost individual care and attention, using archival framing materials and practices. Because limited editions are in limited supply, and are of exceptionally high quality, the price is generally at a premium to regular open edition prints.
