Modern Classics - About the artist and his painting:

Discover the artistic genius of Vincent van Gogh through our resource. Create a stunning large poster, a study painting, and a miniature version. Learn about van Gogh's unique perspective and the emotional turmoil that fueled his masterpiece.

Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890)
was a trailblazer who had a decisive influence on modernism with his tremendous works. Part of the tragedy of his life is that his art was rejected by his contemporaries- he only sold two paintings during his lifetime. The Starry Night is one of the most famous paintings by artist Vincent van Gogh. Van Gogh painted The Starry Night in 1889 during the most difficult period of his life. He suffered from severe depression and painted as if possessed with self-destruction. The painting looks as if van Gogh painted it under the open sky. Or perhaps it’s the view from van Gogh’s sickroom window while he was in the sanatorium, where he was when he painted The Starry Night. No- rather it’s a freely imagined picture, made up of bits and pieces of the artist’s memories.

How can I make the group work poster?

  1. Print the poster templates on white printing paper.
  2. Color or paint the individual sheets according to the template or your own imagination. Make sure that the dotted lines around the outside remain visible.
  3. Once dry, cut out the colored sheets along the dotted lines and sort them- each letter in a separate pile. Then sort them by number so that 1 is on top and 4 is on the bottom.
  4. Glue all ‘A’ sheets together. To do so, apply glue to the long tab on the right side of sheet A1 and glue sheet A2 on top of it so that its left edge is aligned with the solid line. Glue A3 to A2, and so on until you get to A4. Repeat this process with all rows.
  5. Now glue row B’s upper edge to the tab on the lower edge of row A. Then glue row C to row B and so on until all rows are glued together. Your poster is finished!
