Vincent Van Gogh
‘Terrace of a café at night (Place du Forum)’
Oil on Canvas
Kröller Müller Museum
Van Gogh had intended to make a nocturnal painting for some time. And not one in the conventional manner, in shades of black and grey, but actually with an abundance of colours. Equally unconventional is that he paints this gas-lit terrace of a café in Arles in situ and in the dark, because colours have a different appearance during the day than by night.
