Looks familiar, Arles as Van Gogh saw it

Here’s a nice selection of Arles sights, as they are today and as they were depicted by Vincent Van Gogh.

One of his most famous works, Café Terrace at Night is a romantic depiction of the Place du Forum after dark. The painting is on exhibit in the Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo, Netherlands. (Joerg Wittenberg, image courtesy the Van Gogh Museum)
