  • Print Description
      This Vincent van Gogh Café Terrace at Night, 1888 was one of the first scenes Van Gogh painted during his stay in Arles, France and the first painting where he used a nocturnal background. Van Gogh used contrasting colours and tones in harmony and achieved a luminous surface that pulses with light, almost in defiance of the darkening sky.  The vision of a relaxed Van Gogh who enjoys the charm of this scene, recalls his mood when he wrote that "the night is more alive and more richly coloured than the day." The yellow of the cafe plays against the blue-black of the remote street and the violet-blue of the foreground door. Cafe Terrace at Night at the strongest point of this art print showcases the contrast of the awning's blunt corner touching the remote starry blue sky.

The Artist

VINCENT VAN GOGH

Vincent Willem van Gogh (1853 - 1890) was a Dutch post-impressionist painter who is among the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art.

In just over a decade, Van Gogh created about 2,100 artworks, including some 860 oil paintings. They include landscapes, still life's, portraits and self-portraits and are characterised by bold colours and dramatic, impulsive and expressive brushwork that contributed to the foundations of modern art.

Van Gogh became famous after his death and exists in the public imagination as the quintessential misunderstood genius, the artist "where discourses on madness and creativity converge".

Van Gogh's works are among the world's most expensive painting to have ever sold and his legacy is honoured by a museum in his name, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, which holds the world's largest collection of his paintings and drawings.
