Lego set #21333 is a 3D recreation of Vincent Van Gogh’s famous painting. Here’s everything we know about its features, date de sortie, number of pieces and more

Lego has revealed a new set that pays tribute to Vincent van Gogh’s famous painting, The Starry Night, and it painstakingly recreates the artist’s original 1889 post-impressionist masterpiece.

The set was designed by Truman Cheng, a 25-year old Lego fan who is based in Hong Kong. Mr Cheng submitted his set design on the Lego Ideas platform, which was also created in conjunction with the Museum of Modern Art in New York, where the original work is currently located.

Van Gogh first painted The Starry Night using the view from his window at the Monastery of Saint-Paul de Mausole asylum in Saint-Rémy, France, where the artist spent twelve months.

Honouring the celebrated artist, the set also includes a minifigure, complete with a paint brush, palette, easel and mini painting on a printed tile, which can be attached on a hanging arm to show him painting the scene. The intricate set can be displayed standing upright or even hung on a wall.

To find out when you can buy this impressive set, keep reading the rest of the article below.

The Provence village that sits below the starry sky is also layered in exquisite detail, along with the cypress trees that stand out from the canvas.

The minifigure in the artist’s likeness can also form part of the display by being placed on a retractable arm (along with his painting easel) to give it a clear view of the vista.
