I want to draw your attention to some paintings which I am positive when you'll see further in this blog you'll certainly feel like you know them from somewhere but very few are completely knowledgeable of these famous extraordinary artworks.

1. The Starry Night

The Starry Night is painted by Vincent van Gogh, the painting is oil on canvas and was painted on June 1889. He painted The Starry Night from his asylum room and the painting is composed of bright and vibrant colors.

The painting presents the cypresses (trees), the Crescent Moon, The Venus (the morning star), Stars, Hills, The Town, and the swirling Sky. The painting brings into attention the town at the night which is surrounded by darkness in blue strokes and the sky above filled with bright yellow stars.

Vincent van Gogh wrote about the painting to his younger brother Theo:

"Through the iron-barred window, I can see an enclosed square of wheat . . . above which, in the morning, I watch the sunrise in all its glory."

2. The Scream

The artist of this composition is Edvard Munch and it was created in 1893. The original title of the painting given by Edvard Munch was in German which says The Scream Of Nature and the artist was Norwegian so the Norwegian title is Shriek.

Edvard Munch has a diary entry from 22 January 1892 which says:

"I was walking along the road with two friends – the sun was setting – suddenly the sky turned blood red – I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence – there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city – my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety – and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature."

3. The Creation of Adam

The creator behind The Creation of Adam is an Italian artist Michelangelo. It is a fresco painting which means it is a mural painting technique that is performed upon freshly laid or wet lime plaster. The Creation of Adam is on the ceiling of the Sistine Chappal (Christian place of prayer and worship) in the Apostolic Palace in Vatican City. It was painted around 1508–1512.

The painting depicts from the Book of Genesis where God gives life to the first man, Adam. The painting expresses the god on the right stretching his arm towards Adam at the Left, perhaps to impart life.
