Neil deGrasse Tyson gave a great speech about The Starry Night. Not only is it beautiful, emotional, and valuable in both art and science, it’s also the first painting where the background is the main subject of the piece. It was a pivotal point where the universe began to be seen as art and entered the mainstream. I’m a physics student myself and I have to say Van Gogh is one of my favorite artists.
