I'm pretty sure there were no Copyright laws in the Netherlands back then, and if there were, it would be expired long ago.
I can't believe some people know so little about Intellectual Property law...

This is my favorite painting in the world, and you did a good job of copying it. As far as I know when Van Gogh painted this ther were no copy right laws so you should be fine.

Thats amazing! Did you know that the giant swirl in the middle of the sky is a yin yang sign because the picture is about opposites, or atleast thats what i learned in my high school art class lol.

There's no copyright infringement... as long as you're not making money on it. : P

; ) Excellent work, by the way. Van Gough would be proud, if he weren't crazy :O

It's good, yes, but not "just like the real thing".
C'mon people. This is Van Gogh we're talking about.

It's not supposed to be "the real thing". Considering, the artist here captured the color scheme and technique of Van Gough QUITE nicely--I'd like to see you do the same.

And besides, despite the fact that Van Gough was a master-mind and genuis, he only sold ONE painting for 400 francs in his lifetime. We can all hope to be more prosperous than that in our careers.

Yours is a has lighter colors almost like its just turning night, and Van Gough's looks like its been night for a while. I think you used alot more swishy motions, more smooth parts in it. Also, you used more of a green hue in the bottom part of the sky (Just above the mountains). Other than that it looks amazing! I wouldnt know the difference if I didnt have a picture of the original as my desktop background...Its not always Starry Night..but for my project in sculpture I needed a reference of it, and my computer is in our "design" room, so Ta-Da!

Props! Cause it woulda taken me a million years to recreate a fine piece of art. *snap snap snap*
