Café Terrace at Night by Vincent Van Gogh, Squared

That instantly recognisable deep signature blue used by Van Gogh is unmistakable in any form and this modern interpretation of Café Terrace at Night is no exception.

  • Café Terrace at Night That instantly recognisable deep signature blue used by Van Gogh is unmistakable in any form and this modern interpretation of Café Terrace at Night is no exception. Capturing the play of starlight and lamplight outside this local coffehouse in Arles, France in 1888, Van Gogh was interested in the strong interplay between vivid orange and deep, nighttime blue. Currently on display at The Kroller-Muller Museum in The Netherlands, this vivid piece is a triumph of colour and observation—Van Gogh at his finest.

    Now one of the most reproduced images of any Van Gogh painting, Café Terrace at Night is also now at home in our Art Squared collection. The spirit of this work lends itself well to a more contemporary expression; in just 35 coloured squares, the warmth and twilight of this familiar, much loved artwork are conveyed beautifully and will add a touch of quality to any space.

The Art Squared Collection

The idea for Art Squared first came to me back when I was studying art history. Even though I loved classical paintings, I preferred a more modern aesthetic. And while decorating my home, I found that hanging copies of some of the old classics didn’t really work alongside contemporary décor. So I began to wonder if there was a way to capture some of what I loved about these works and render it in a modern form.

The result is Art Squared. The process is one of careful and deliberate abstraction to a grid of five by seven squares that seeks to capture the colours of the original work along with something of the composition. It is not a case of simply pixellating old paintings – which gives a crude result full of meaningless browns and greys – but rather a precise reframing and recolouring in order to create pleasing compositions that work on their own, irrespective of whether a viewer knows anything about the paintings on which they are based.

So, in making these prints, I didn’t feel burdened by the need to represent the original paintings too closely. I wanted to produce something new, albeit strongly inspired by art that’s old, familiar and loved.
