Night at the station cafe in Arles – the attempt of the artist to convey his impressions of the place and the people, regulars. The author himself frequented this cafe and created several portraits. To master this cafe – a place of frustration, and the patrons are trying to quickly escape from reality.
Cafe is very modest, the only entertainment for the guests was old and shabby pool. Watches – the need for landside schools – show that the time past midnight. The few visitors busy with their business. Someone has fallen asleep at the table, a couple in the corner leads the conversation, the man at the center facing the viewer. He squandered contemplates either artist, or picture viewers.
To master the color has always been an important means to express their emotions and attitudes to the subject of their work. It is necessary to take a closer look into the picture as musty atmosphere of decline and depression starts to envelop the viewer. Billiards turns into a coffin, and green and red tones complete the depressing impression. And the clock is ticking last hours of the life of everyone in the cafe.
New wizard for color work and skilful distortion of space, allowing brighter reveal the idea of work, suggest a picture of the first experience in the history of art to create a fabric that gave the whole life style – Expressionism.
