Dab Hand says: Vincent van Gogh was one of the most enigmatic and prolific artists of the late 19th century. He painted this terrace of a café in Arles in situ and in the dark, because colours have a different appearance by night. His keen observation is born out by later astronomical research. The constellations are depicted precisely as they appeared on the night of 16 or 17 September 1888. This portrait format puzzle – from Eurographics’ Fine Art Collection – has unusually shaped pieces which adds to the challenge of completing it.
