This replicated image of Vincent Van Gogh’s famous painting Starry Night was created with the use today’s technology. At first glance it is unmistakably recognized as Starry Night, but with closer analysis you can see that this replicated image is a lot less detailed. It looks as if this image was created on a tablet with a stylus rather than painted on a canvas with a brush. This image was actually created on an iPhone/ iPad app called the brushes app by artist Jorge Colombo. In Van Gogh’s painting you can see all of the brush strokes and the flecks of multiple different colors integrated throughout the entire piece. This replicated image is smooth compared to the original. It also seems to lack dimensions when compared to the original. The original piece has more noticeable lines and the colors are layered not blended but that is what gives Starry Night character. I choose this image because Starry Night along with many other older painting is often replicated either for personal use or commercial use. Today you can order a canvas, a blanket, a phone case etc. with this image printed on it. The more popular this image becomes and the more it is used the more authentic the original will be. Since this painting is so old copyright laws have expired allowing for the wide commercial use of this famous piece.
