    The History

    Cafe at Night or "Cafe Terrace At Night" was one of the first scenes Van Gogh painted during his stay in Arles. It was also the first painting where he used a background that depicted night stars.

    With the use of contrasting color, Van Gogh accomplished a warmth in the painting that seemed to invite the viewer into the cafe on a cold night.

    Describing this painting in a letter to his sister he wrote,

    "...It is already a few days since I started writing this letter, and now I will continue it. In point of fact I was interrupted these days by my toiling on a new picture representing the outside of a café at night. On the terrace there are the tiny figures of drinkers. An immense yellow lantern illuminates the terrace, the facade and the sidewalk, and even casts its light on the pavement of the streets, which takes a pinkish violet tone. The gables of the houses in the street stretching away under a blue sky spangled with stars are dark blue or violet with a green tree. Here you have a night picture without black in it, done with nothing but beautiful blue and violet and green, and lemon-yellow. It amuses me enormously to paint the night right on the spot. They used to draw and paint the picture in the daytime after the sketch. But I find satisfaction in painting the thing immediately."

    Painted on the street at night, Van Gogh recreated the setting by observing. This practice was inherited from other Impressionists. The cafe still exists today and is considered "holy ground" by Van Gogh fans visiting the south of France. Yet, unlike the Impressionists, he did not record the scene as his eye observed it, but he injected the image with a spiritual and emotional tone that mirrored individual perceptions. The brushstrokes vibrate with the sense of excitement and delight Van Gogh experienced while painting this work. 

    Van Gogh went on to paint star-filled skies in Starry Night Over the Rhone (painted the same month), and the better known Starry Night a year later.

    The original work was produced in mid-September (1888) and is currently at the Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo, Netherlands.
