Cafe Terrace at Night: This exterior of a café on the Place du Forum in Arles was painted after Van Gogh moved to the south of France in 1888. Vincent van Gogh was excited by the colors and light he found in the south. He was also eager to experiment and tried to show the range of colors seen at night.

In a letter from Van Gogh to his sister, he describes the painting of the night cafe "... here there is a night picture without any black, nothing but beautiful blue and violet and green, and in those surroundings the lighted square is colored sulphur yellow and limey green."

Van Gogh's symbolic concept for this painting of the Terrace Cafe contains stars that shine like far-away salvation, contrasting with the compelling seduction of the warmly-lit café.

In Arles, Vincent Van Gogh's paintings began to resemble his drawings, using the same graphic techniques: stippling, hatching and outlining. These techniques can be seen in the brushwork of Cafe Terrace at Night.
