LEGO Ideas 21333 Vincent Van Gogh – The Starry Night launches today

The latest LEGO Ideas set is now available to non-LEGO VIP buyers, drawing inspiration from one of the world’s most famous artists.

As you might have gleaned from the headline, 21333 Vincent Van Gogh – The Starry Night is a tribute to the famous 19th-century painting. It was created by Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh, and is widely considered the greatest work he ever produced. 

The LEGO version is a loving recreation of the original (on display in New York’s Museum of Modern Art, who aided the LEGO Group during this set’s design process). It recreates the rich blues and yellows of the painting’s night sky, with exclusive printed elements used to depict the picture’s celestial bodies. The picture’s landscape is also preserved, with its rolling hills and large tree providing some extra depth. 

Another point of interest for LEGO fans is a minifigure of Vincent Van Gogh. This references his self portrait, with that painting’s colour scheme and brush strokes both represented here. If you want to expand your collection of real-life people in LEGO form (or just recreate that one Doctor Who episode) this might be the set for you. 

LEGO Vincent can be attached to the painting, and the entire thing can even be hung on the wall like a more conventional picture. It retails for £149.99 / $169.99 / €169.99, which (while expensive) is probably cheaper than the real one ever will be. If you want to add a touch of culture to your LEGO collection, head on over to LEGO.com to pick it up.
