Night Cafe' in the Place Lamartine in Arles

Vincent Van Gogh's "Night Café in the Place Lamartine in Arles" was painted in Arles, France, 1888.

70 x 89 cm, Oil con canvas.

Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, Conn., USA.

Vincent thought that the harsh red and green colours actually made his "Night Café" terribly ugly. Even so, he must have been rather proud of the painting as well because he even wrote the title on the painting: "Le café de nuit".
