Madonna Art Makes it a Happy 60th

There are milestones and then there are MILESTONES. Holy cow, where did the time go? Today we celebrate the 60th birthday of the best selling female recording artist of all time, with a smashing selection of Madonna Wall Art. Madonna Louise Ciccone was born on August 16th, 1958, in Bay City, Michigan. She migrated to the Big Apple in 1978 to follow her dream and we are forever grateful. Her first album, Madonna, was released in 1983. A remarkable string of hit albums and singles followed. Like a Virgin, Vogue, and Take a Bow broke new ground.

No matter who you are, no matter what you did, no matter where you’ve come from, you can always change, become a better version of yourself.”
– Madonna

Vincent Van Gogh – Two Starry Nights?

Vincent Van Gogh is the preeminent Post-Impressionist. He was born on March 30th, 1853 in Zundert, Netherlands and left this world in late July 1890. His innovative techniques laid the groundwork for modern art. The Starry Night (1989) is his most famous painting and is one of a pair of similarly named pieces. 

Don McLean paid tribute with his classic song Vincent (Starry, Starry Night), which was released on the American Pie album, in 1971. As legend has it, the song was written on a paper bag after McLean read a book about Van Gogh’s life.
