Painted in the last period of his life, Vincent van Gogh's Starry Night, Starlight Over the Rhone, and Cafe Terrace at Night create tremendous emotional impact.
Some believe Starlight Over the Rhone is the first of the series of 'Stars' painted by Vincent with Starry Night being painted the following year. In both paintings, the heavens are alive
with the vibrancy of the stars contrasted by the dark blues of the sky.
Considered one of van Gogh's most remarkable works of art, all lines of Cafe Terrace at Night point directly to
the center of the painting, drawing you into the piece. Though the painting seems dark, no black is used. Pay attention to the figure clad in white serving the twelve dark figures at the tables, one of
whom stands with him and turns his back on him, and make your own conclusion as to what this painting is about.
