December 2, 2009 - Karin Elton
According to’s statistics, Vincent van Gogh has the top two most popular oil paintings in the world, with “Starry Night” in first place and “Café Terrace at Night” in second. “Van Gogh consistently remains the most popular artist in the world; his total sales numbers have left everyone well behind,” said David Sasson, CEO of The top oil paintings sold online according to are: 1. Starry Night – Vincent van Gogh 2. Café Terrace at Night – Vincent van Gogh 3. The Kiss – Gustav Klimt 4. Poppy Field at Argenteuil – Claude Monet 5. Luncheon of the Boating Party – Pierre Auguste Renoir 6. Garden Path at Giverny – Claude Monet 7. The Rest – Pablo Picasso 8. Red Cannas – Georgia O’Keeffe 9. Farbstudie Quadrate (Color Study of Squares) – Wassily Kandinsky 10. The Dream – Pablo Picasso

I’m a fan of van Gogh’s “Starry Night” as well. Why does that painting resonate with so many people? I love the song, "Vincent (Starry, Starry Night)" by Don McLean.

I'm also fascinated by Edvard Munch's “The Scream.” It was even stolen and eventually recovered unharmed years later.
