This was a dream that I had about Vincent sitting at a window
looking out at His Starry Night.  Since Starry Night was such a
mystery as to why he painted it, I wanted him to be in my version
of the painting he did of The Bedroom of Arles that was in his
Yellow House where he lived in 1888. (below)

I wonder if he visualized this scene while looking out his
window, sick in the asylum where he painted Starry Night.
He painted it from memory while locked away.

Enjoy Starry Starry Night!

The Bedroom of Arles 1988

Van Gogh painted “Starry Night” during one of the most difficult periods of his life, while he was locked up in an asylum at Saint Remy. He had to paint the scene from memory, not outdoors as he preferred. Van Gogh mentioned “Starry Night” only twice in his letters to his brother, Theo. It is therefore one of the more mysterious and intriguing Van Gogh compositions.
Vincent (Starry Starry Night)
 McLean wrote “Vincent,” also known as “Starry, Starry Night,” in the fall of 1970, while he was working for the Berkshire School District. He was living in the Sedgwick House, a beautiful Federal style house in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. The Sedgwick family included Edie Sedgwick, a colorful figure whom Andy Warhol had filmed in the 1960s. McLean wrote “Vincent” in his apartment full of antiques. The inspiration came to him one morning while he was sitting on the veranda looking at a book about Vincent Van Gogh. As he studied a print of Van Gogh’s painting “Starry Night,” he realized that a song could be written about the artist through the painting.
