Notes

Summary:
Although the composition seems rather casual, the artist carefully organized it with curving patterns. For instance, the shape of the huge arches at the back of the room is subtly repeated in the backs of the chairs. Vuillard also used color and light to visually unite the scene. Thus the walls, tables and even the people seem to dissolve into patches of white-tinted color and flickering light. Vuillard was preoccupied with this canvas over the course of several years. He probably began the painting in 1908 after he moved to an apartment near the café.
