A little oasis of light and life on a dark evening, the painting conjures up memories of merry evenings
See the starry night background? This was the first painting in which he used such stars…which he would later famously paint in Starry Night amongst others

More about Café Terrace at Night
The painting was of a café the artist and his friends used to visit.

Vincent was pleased with the painting, for a change, and wrote to his sister about it, describing the painting in detail. “It amuses me enormously to paint the night right on the spot. Normally, one draws and paints the painting during the daytime after the sketch. But I like to paint the thing immediately. It is true that in the darkness I can take a blue for a green, a blue lilac for a pink lilac, since it is hard to distinguish the quality of the tone. But it is the only way to get away from our conventional night with poor pale whitish light, while even a simple candle already provides us with the richest of yellows and oranges”.

Some believe the painting actually contains a “Last Supper” scene taken from a different angle. There appear to be 12 people surrounding a central, long-haired figure.

The painting currently hangs in the Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo, Netherlands.
