"Starry Night Over the Pontar" is a painting by van Rogh, and a quest item in the Hearts of Stone expansion.

It may be acquired at the auction during the quest Open Sesame!, either for 20 Oren3.png or 60 Oren3.png (only if you successfully got information from Yaromir and then told Vivaldi). If you gained the necessary information from Yaromir by correctly answering his question, buying the painting would later start the Avid Collector quest in which the painting can be sold on to Marcus T.K. Hodgson, a famed Novigrad book dealer, who will pay quite a tidy sum for it.

Alternatively, Geralt can hold onto the painting and display it at Corvo Bianco with the Blood and Wine expansion installed.

  • It's mentioned in the document List of objects in need of restoration found later on in the vault.
  • With Blood and Wine expansion, it's possible to keep the painting while still completing the quest by first hanging it in Corvo Bianco, then selling it to Marcus. However, the painting will still be hanging in Corvo Bianco after selling it.
    • While you can do this to keep it for your home, there's no way to put it in your stash as it'll always be marked as a quest item.
    • Due to a bug, you can't hang this painting in your home in a new game plus. The only way to do so is by using mods
