Vincent Van Gogh was born in the Netherlands, 1853 - 1890. Van Gogh spent his early adult life working for a firm of art dealers. After a brief spell as a teacher, he became a missionary worker in a very poor mining region. He did not embark upon a career as an artist until 1880.
Café Terrace at Night, also known as The Cafe Terrace on the Place du Forum was painted in Arles, France, mid-September 1888. Visitors can still stand at the northeastern corner of the Place du Forum, where Van Gogh set up his easel. He looked south towards the artificially lit terrace of the popular coffee house, as well as into the enforced darkness of the rue du Palais and beyond. This is the first painting in which he used starry backgrounds; he went on to paint star-filled skies in Starry Night Over the Rhone (painted the same month), and the better-known Starry Night a year later.
