Closeout - Starry Night
With smells of post impressionist starlight, French countryside and insanity, this soap is an escape from reality. Perfectly balanced for the imperfectly balanced...and remember, no one is perfect. An all purpose soap, great for washing your front, back and behind...the ears, or ear, if you cut one of them off.
Starry Night is a limited edition bar from our Picassoap Series, a series where we give homage to master artists who often exhibited their freak flag alongside their art. This is series one - Mansplainting.
The Starry Night is an oil on canvas by the Dutch post-impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh. Painted in June 1889, it depicts the view from the east-facing window of his asylum room at Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, just before sunrise. Six months earlier, Vincent had notoriously cut off his own ear in a fit of rage and depression. No one really knows why he took a razor to his ear, but suggestions abound. A year after painting The Starry Night, Van Gogh will die from two self administered gun shots to the chest. He had reportedly only sold one painting in his lifetime. In 1990 his painting, Dr. Gauchet, sold for $85 million.
The Starry Night is currently display in New York’s Museum of Modern Art.
