Why This Particular Mashup (apart from how gorgeous it is)?
It’s well known to historians that Van Gogh was an admirer of Japanese art, and of The Great Wave in particular. He once raved to his brother in a letter, “These waves are claws, the boat is caught in them, you can feel it.” So it’s not surprising that some argue Van Gogh intentionally referenced Hokusai’s Wave in the undulating shapes of his night sky.
Whether Van Gogh purposefully incorporated elements of The Great Wave in Starry Night or simply had the image in his subconscious, the matching flow of the two pieces is unmistakable. And this coordinated energy comes to life when they’re combined in Starry Wave.
As you do this puzzle — as you piece together the swelling wave in the foreground and watch it slowly but surely move up and around the billowing sky in the distance — you will find yourself seeing both of these masterpieces in an invigorating new way. The unusual perspective will enrich your experience of both pieces of art no matter where you encounter them, whether referenced in pop culture or hung on the wall of a venerated museum.
But we’re veering dangerously close to pretentious art talk here, so let’s cut to the chase: This puzzle is stunning to look at and a heck of a lot of fun to put together. It really is that simple.
