Vincent Van Gogh “The Cafe Terrace on the Place Du Forum Arles” Framed Print


Design Plus Gallery presents “The Cafe Terrace on the Place du Forum Arles” a framed print by Vincent Van Gogh. Print is custom framed in slim warm wood and protected by glass.

“When exhibited for the first time, in 1891, the painting was entitled Coffeehouse, in the evening (Café, le soir). This is the first painting in which he used starry backgrounds; he went on to paint star-filled skies in Starry Night Over the Rhône (painted the same month), and the better known The Starry Night a year later. Van Gogh also painted a starlight background in Portrait of Eugène Boch. Van Gogh mentioned the Cafe Terrace painting in a letter written to Eugène Boch on 2 October 1888, writing he had painted “a view of the café on place du Forum, where we used to go, painted at night” (emphasis van Gogh’s).

The constellations are depicted with such fidelity to be able to precisely date the creation of the painting to 16–17 September 1888″
