Café Terrace at Night - Van Gogh

We just learned about the Van Gogh painting of the Great Peacock Moth.

Another of his famous paintings is Café Terrace at Night.

His most famous painting of Starry Night was part of a group of three paintings.
The first one was about a Cafe that he visited and then painted in 1888.

The other is called Starry Night Over the Rhône, which he also painted in 1988.
Both of these were before the more famous Starry Night, and were the inspiration for him to make his most famous painting.
