Artist: Vincent Van Gogh
"The Night Cafe"
This painting was done in 1888, and it was originally in color. I chose this due to this week's theme being on one point perspective. What i like about this one, is that the focus point is not in dead center of the picture, it is to the left of the center. What is also nice is that in this edited version, it is in grayscale vs. the original color that Van Gogh painted it in. This painting was supposed to resemble the human emotions of despair and desolation, however I did not get that from the colored version. This grayscale for me really captured those emotions.
