Café Terrace at Night Replica on Canvas to own

Van Gogh Studio is based in Amsterdam, nearby the Van Gogh Museum where we continue to study the original works. Our paintings are all hand painted mainly here in Holland by Dutch and world artists who have studied the technique of Van Gogh, including brush strokes, colour mixing, ambience and rhythm of application. If you are in town be sure to make an appointment to come to our showroom and view our reproductions. Instead of focusing on a range of old masters at Van Gogh Studio we are specialized in creating only Van Gogh works, which means we are also able to recreate his lesser known works and painting studies.

Cafe Terrace au Place du Forum: Deceptively Simple

Café Terrace at Night (also known as Café Terrace au Place du Forum) depicts an everyday scene of a café terrace, bathed in warm, yellow gas-light. The work on first glance can seem simplistic, but the image and the mood often stay with the viewer. On repeated viewings the more complex aspects of the work show themselves. The colour is remarkable, the way Van Gogh is able to balance opposing colours so close together, blues and yellow for example, that give the painting an intensity but also manages to remain warm and soothing. His beautiful renditions of the locals too give the painting a humanity but do not take away from its overall scenic composition.

Van Gogh’s Café Terrace at Night

Van Gogh was in a stage of painting through the night and sleeping in the day as he created this everlasting work. The café in question was called Café Le Soir and Van Gogh would study the place and people for hours. He eventually set up his easel and began to put this image to canvas, allowing his imagination to run with the scene in front of him. He especially enjoyed painting the people, in a letter to his brother Theo he remarks: ‘On the terrace there are small figures of drinkers. Painting there at night amuses me greatly.’

Current value of Café Terrace at Night

It is impossible to give the work an accurate price tag today, though it would be said to easily be worth over $100 million if it was ever sold.
