LEGO Ideas Vincent van Gogh: The Starry Night Project Description
This set is a tribute to the Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh.
As a LEGO fan and an admirer of the painter, I wish to recreate one of his most celebrated artwork in Lego form, and share this with all Lego fans and art lovers!
The design is based on the painting “The Starry Night” by van Gogh, painted in 1889.
The set re-imagines the original painting in a 3D scene, with strong emphasis on the artist’s iconic brush strokes and color choice.
Various techniques are used to reproduce van Gogh’s beautiful brush work.
Clips and brackets form the swirling cloud; plates stack to form the hillsides and bushes; curve parts build up to become the cypress tree. My favorite part is the inclined plate stack on the right, capturing the angled brush strokes within the moon-lit cloud.
In honor of the artist, a Vincent van Gogh minifigure is also included in the set. This also comes with:
- A paint brush
- Painting palette
- “Starry Night” mini-painting on printed tile
I love putting the minifigure before the 3D scenery. It is like watching the artist work on the painting in real time.
Part count of this set: 1552
