In 1886, after having a hard time in his Dutch homeland, Vincent Van Gogh moved to Paris to live with his brother Theo. He began to frequent CafÃ© du Tambourin, a restaurant, and cafÃ© in which the owner, Agostina Segatori, encouraged local artists by organizing exhibits in her establishment. Van Gogh made a deal with her, exchanging meals for painting - Agostina Segatori Sitting In The Cafe Du Tambourin is one of these commissioned works.
Van Gogh was deeply influenced by the French Impressionists, and many of them depicted a woman alone sitting at a table in their artwork before, like Manet and Degas. He was also fascinated by the Japanese woodcut prints that came to Europe at the time and was able to organize an exhibit of his collection of prints at the cafÃ©, seen in the background of the painting. On the right top side of the canvas, bright colors and gestural brushstrokes depict one of these exotic prints. Other prints arenât as visible in the background.
Segatori is almost centered on the canvas, slightly to the left and is sitting at a red tambourine shaped table. She is wearing a fashionable jacket, a red and big headdress and a dark and ornamented skirt. There are two brown tambourine seats portrayed on the forefront of the canvas, with a pink and blue parasol upon one of them. She is drinking a cup of beer and smoking a cigarette as she looks into the painterâs direction.
As an indoor scene, Van Gogh was able to capture the gloomy lighting of the night lifestyle of bars and brothels. During this time, a woman drinking and smoking at a cafÃ© was not considered respectable. The color pallet is very colorful, even though it is darker than the scenes he usually portrayed. It was six months in when they separated, and he referred to this affair as disgraceful just as the other love interests he had in Paris, in a letter to his sister.
Most of what is known from Van Goghâs work comes from studying his letters to his family and friends, especially to his brother Theo. His years living in Paris was one of the most crucial, for he changed his style of work drastically. But since he lived with Theo at this time, not much is known about his view the works he produced in Paris.
