Congratulations to Melissa, who was the first to identify The Starry Night (1889) by Vincent van Gogh, using only a very small detail from the work. Melissa wins a $25 gift certificate to Piedmont Restaurant.

All the images are taken from Google’s Art Project, which allows you to take a virtual tour of 17 art museums around the world (including New York’s MOMA, home of Starry Night) and also lets you zoom in for amazing detail on many of their artworks.

Thanks to everyone for participating! New contest coming soon.

    VERY, VERY close-up of the iris of the eye in the “Now You See Me” card?

  2. Melissa says:

    Looks like part of the sky from Starry Night by Van Gogh

  3. Thomas Carson says:

    I think it is a portion of Van Gogh’s Starry Night.

    Clue #2 added…

  5. Joe says:

    Is it new artwork for the theatrical adaptation of the Samuel Jackson thriller Deep Blue Sea?

  6. Cyndi Bunn says:

    Ok, so I’ve already guessed once. Consequently, this is an non-qualifying guess — Van Gogh’s “Starry Night”?
