Agostina Segatori Sitting in the Café du Tambourin Vincent van Gogh
This work was painted by Vincent van Gogh in 1887. It depicts a strikingly dressed woman sitting at a table at the Café du Tambourin on the Boulevard de Clichy in Paris. The woman is Agostina Segatori, the owner of the Café du Tambourin. This was the Paris café frequented by van Gogh and his friends. He paid for his meals here with paintings which were in turn used to decorate the café. It can thus be said to be the place where the public would for the first time be able to see the works of van Gogh.
