One of the most famous examples is Vincent Van Gogh's Starry Night, painted in 1889.

This color can also represent sophistication, power, and authority.

Some people may find midnight blue too dark or gloomy, while others may find it calming and soothing.

Midnight blue can be used to create contrast with lighter colors, or to create a harmonious color scheme with other shades of blue or purple.
