No. 1-Araceli Mendez: The Cafe Terrace on the Place du Forum by Vincent van Gogh

The Cafe Terrace at NightArt is the deliberate creation of a product or process with an intention beyond utility. Art can be found in different modes such as film, paintings, furniture, clothing, cars, sculptures, etc.

A work of art can sometimes be found aesthetically pleasing or be completely ignored for generations. Vincent van Gogh’s work, for example, wasn’t truly appreciated until after his death.  While alive his work was considered too dark in comparison to the bright Impressionist paintings and he struggled to sell a painting. Now Vincent van Gogh is considered one of history’s greatest artists.
