The Night Cafe'

The Night Cafe' by Vincent Van Gogh was created in 1888 and he used oil on canvas. The painting shows the interior of the cafe. The part that I found most interesting is the half-curtained doorway in the center background. It looks as though this doorway is leading to more private quarters. There are different customers placed throughout the painting also which add life to the painting. Van Gogh used contrast colors when painting this cafe. Making the ceiling is green, the upper walls red, the glowing, gas ceiling lamps and floor largely yellow.
