Painted by van Gogh in Arles, France, mid-September 1888. The painting is not signed, but described and mentioned by the artist in three letters. There is also a large pen drawing of the composition which originates from the artist's estate.
Visitors of the site can still stand at the northeast corner of the Place du Forum, where the artist set up his easel. He looked south towards the artificially lit terrace of the popular coffee house, as well as into the enforced darkness of the rue du Palais leading up to the building structure (to the left, not pictured) and, beyond this structure, the tower of a former church (now Musï¿½e Lapidaire). Towards the right, Van Gogh indicated a lighted shop as well, and some branches of the trees surrounding the placeï¿½but he omitted the remainders of the Roman monuments just beside this little shop.
Here is your opportunity to stitch what he saw and set down for all time in one of the most eloquent of all his efforts.
Optional Kit includes, in addition to the canvas, your choice of threads for the Half-Cross Stitch, needles and needle threader. Additional threads can be purchased for the Continental or Basketweave Stitch.
