Vincent Van Gogh In The Cafe: Agostina Segatori In Le Tambourin
Agostina Segatori Sitting in the Cafe du Tambourin was painted by Vincent van Gogh in 1887. Agostina Segatori owned the Cafe du Tambourin that Van Gogh knew intimately. It was a gathering spot for Parisian artists, a place where their work was exhibited. Van Gogh, unable to pay in cash for his meals, exchanged paintings for his fare. The paintings then adorned the restaurant. He held a special exhibit of his Japanese prints in the cafe as well. His connection with Agostina and the cafe came to a sad end when she went bankrupt and Van Gogh’s paintings were confiscated by creditors. This painting, however, demonstrates an artistic discovery that culminated in his unique, creative style not quite on the brink of being understood and revered.
