Additional information:

When Ethan is in Dr. Neville’s living room watching the movie ‘Shrek’, you can see Van Gogh ‘Starry Night’ hanging on the wall over the television. In a letter written to Émile Bernard in April 1888, Van Gogh expressed his desire to paint the night sky, and questioned whether he could achieve his intention by painting from nature as the Impressionists did: “The imagination is certainly a faculty which we must develop and it alone can bring us to creation of a more exalting and consoling nature … A star-spangled sky, for instance, that’s a thing I would like to try to do … But how can I manage unless I make up my mind to work … from imagination?”.
