Starry Night is actually a depiction of Van Gogh's view from an asylum. After experiencing a mental breakdown in the winter of 1888, Van Gogh checked himself into the Saint-Paul-De-Mausole asylum near the Saint-Remy-de-Provence. This view became the basis of his most iconic work. Historians argue whether or not the village depicted in this painting is inspired by his homeland in the Netherlands.
