This painting is my own version of Vincent’s painting of a starry night over the Rhone. I drew it from the same spot in Arles on the Place Lamartine where van Gogh observed the scene in 1888. It’s barely changed in more than 100 years and still has the same magic which drew Vincent to the scene. It is just a stone’s throw from the lace where he lived at what he called The Yellow House.
A painting of the voyage of HMS Beagle, the ship on which Charles Darwin travelled around the world -with particular attention to South America - making discoveries as he went that would change the course of natural science.
