This work depicts a café in Arles in the South of France. The scene appealed to Van Gogh as it allowed him to produce a night painting with no black, with the terrace illuminated by the bright yellow lights of the café and the sky providing a backdrop of deep blue to the flicking stars. It is in this work that we first see the starry background which would form a key feature of many of the artist's most distinctive works.
