What it was like to see “The Starry Night” when it was new


Paul Saul, “Hitler’s Bunker,” found at flickr.

“…Register for your ‘free timed tickets’ on the Yale University Art Gallery web site. You will never have a chance to see these paintings this way ever again. But then, walk to the far side of the wall opposite the entrance to the Van Goghs. There you will find a recently acquired Peter Saul painting entitled ‘Hitler’s Bunker.’ Its luminous madness won’t appear on any Visa® Card soon. But it will let you have an experience very like what it must have been to see ‘The Starry Night’ when it was new.”
