"The Night Cafe"

Vincent Van Gogh - Oil - 72 x 92 cm - 1888 - (Yale University Art Gallery (New Haven, United States))

The painting ‘Night Café’ shows the dingy indoors of an all-night café which was frequently visited by prostitutes and by those who had no money for lodging or were too drunk to be taken in. The image shows tables and chairs, five customers on the left and right, a billiard table in the middle, the landlord in white clothes. Van Gogh uses the most contrasting colours in this painting, to portray the 'terrible passions of humanity. Van Gogh described the colours to his brother in a letter, as 'alien reds and green'. The blood-red sits in contrast with the flowers on the counter, the yellow floors with the blue tables. The image imbues a feeling of desperation. It is the perspective that has the most powerful effect, two thirds of the painting are just the yellow-green floorboards, the scene is narrowed towards the door at the back, the viewer is placed at an unusual point, making it feel night-marish like something isn't right. Van Gogh claimed it as his ugliest picture. It is known as one of his masterpieces.
