The Restaurant de la Sirène at Asnières -  Vincent van Gogh - Allen Printing - Framed Print - 11"H x 14"W

Vincent Willem van Gogh was a Dutch Post-Impressionist painter who is among the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art. In just over a decade he created approximately 2100 artworks, including around 860 oil paintings, most of them in the last two years of his life. They include landscapes, still lifes, portraits and self-portraits, and are characterised by bold, symbolic colours, and dramatic, impulsive and highly expressive brushwork that contributed to the foundations of modern art. He sold only one painting during his lifetime and became famous after his suicide, aged 37, which followed years of poverty and mental illness.

In creating The Restaurant de la Sirène at Asnières (F313) Van Gogh is clearly influenced by the Impressionist movement, while making it very much his own style. Impressionists like Renoir preferred to show the moods and scenes of the interior of restaurants, while Van Gogh often depicts exteriors, such as this painting. Van Gogh uses vivid colors, yet also brought brightness to the painting with white paint, to depict a summer day.
