The artist painted "Starry Night" in June 1889, a year before his death.
This painting is recognized not only as one of his best works,
but also one of the most significant works of Western painting.
In 2004, with the help of the Hubble Space Telescope, scientists observed the vortices
of clouds, dust and gas around a distant star,
which reminded them of the Starry Night picture.
It turns out that when the famous Dutch painter was in a hospital in France,
he captured one of the most difficult and elusive events in science – turbulence.
More than a hundred years ago, the terribly suffering author of this picture,
being in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, somehow managed to realize
and express one of the most complex phenomenon that nature presented to humanity.
After analyzing the "pulsating" light paintings of other impressionists,
the researchers concluded that their creations do not have such mathematical precision
as the works of this artist.
