“Cafe Terrace at Night”
This is the FIRST time that Vincent van Gogh used ‘a starry night’ in any of his paintings.
The painting is of a REAL cafe in Arles, France. This painting was never signed by van Gogh. The coffeehouse is now named after van Gogh.
This painting is one of a trilogy of ‘starry nights’ paintings by van Gogh: “Cafe Terrace at Night” … “Starry Night Over the Rhone” … and “Starry Night”.
