The painting itself was made during the time when Van Gogh was admitted into a mental asylum in Saint-Remy. During his period there, Van Gogh was generally not allowed to work on his paintings inside his room. But some of the few times that he was allowed to (and actually could) work on his paintings, he created as much as he possibly could, not wanting to waste time.
Typically, the festival is celebrated on the 24th of winter. It is celebrated throughout the entire day, wherein if you are sufficiently close enough with the person of your affection, then that person will ask you out. If the person of your affection is your wife, you will find that she will be waiting in your home with a festive meal cooked for you.
Phone books, piggy banks and the public domain
The judge in Bridgeman v. Corel relied on two important higher court cases. The first one, Feist Publications, Inc. v. Rural Telephone Service Co., was a U.S. Supreme court decision finding that a telephone company’s white pages publication was not copyrightable. In Feist, both parties agreed that the compiled facts—the name, home town, and telephone number of telephone line owners—were not in themselves copyrightable. But they disagreed over how much “originality” was needed to make the specific compilation copyrightable. This case is important in part because it looked at the issue of the “sweat of the brow” versus newness or creativity. The telephone company had gone through the work of collecting and compiling the data (i.e, it had expended “sweat of the brow”) but its final product, an ordinary alphabetical compilation, just wasn’t original enough, sweat or no sweat, the court decided.
On the one hand, that photograph of a public domain painting you took while visiting a museum is yours and yours alone, but when you go to actually make use of that photograph for your own work it could well be flawed—too dark, too grainy, shot on an angle—to be useful for your purposes. On the other hand, the digital image of the same work on the museum’s website looks pretty great. Well lighted. Crisp focus. Shot from straight on. It looks a lot more like the painting you remember. In fact, as you search for images on the Internet you’re very likely to find many high quality reproductions of the very works you’re confident are in the public domain. And very often, you’ll see that the image bears a copyright notice and is being offered under a license for a fee. What’s up with that?
In creating this image of the night sky—dominated by the bright moon at right and Venus at center left—van Gogh heralded modern painting’s new embrace of mood, expression, symbol, and sentiment. Inspired by the view from his window at the Saint-Paul-de-Mausole asylum in Saint-Rémy, in southern France, where the artist spent twelve months in 1889–90 seeking reprieve from his mental illnesses, The Starry Night (made in mid-June) is both an exercise in observation and a clear departure from it. The vision took place at night, yet the painting, among hundreds of artworks van Gogh made that year, was created in several sessions during the day, under entirely different atmospheric conditions. The picturesque village nestled below the hills was based on other views—it could not be seen from his window—and the cypress at left appears much closer than it was. And although certain features of the sky have been reconstructed as observed, the artist altered celestial shapes and added a sense of glow.
Van Gogh assigned an emotional language to night and nature that took them far from their actual appearances. Dominated by vivid blues and yellows applied with gestural verve and immediacy, The Starry Night also demonstrates how inseparable van Gogh’s vision was from the new procedures of painting he had devised, in which color and paint describe a world outside the artwork even as they telegraph their own status as, merely, color and paint.
