Le cafe du nuit

This is one of Van Gogh's most famous oil on canvas paintings done in September of 1888. It stands at 72.4 cm x 92.1 cm at Yale University. It is done in one point perspective. After researching the painting I found that Van Gogh did not use the colors that were reality, but the colors that conveyed emotions. He felt that a cafe is a place where people can ruin themselves or go crazy. He tried to convey that chaos by using contrasting color.
