Van Gogh's Cafe at Night

I love this painting of an Arles cafe. The colors are so beautifully bright. I'm usually not a fan of compositions with symmetry in them. (See how the canvas is divided pretty evenly between left and right?) But, it doesn't bother me here. The yellow warmth of the cafe is so inviting. It makes me smile. "The Starry Night" doesn't hold a candle to this one, in my opinion.
