“This morning I saw the country from my window a long time before the sunrise, with nothing but the morning star, which looked very big.”   Vincent wrote of his experience to his brother Theo.

Listen to the MOMA multimedia  and answer the following questions:

  1. Why is this painting admired?
  2. What can you see in the foreground?
  3. Where can you find cypress trees?
  4. How would you describe the sky in this painting?
  5. According to Van Gogh, where do we go when we die?
