Soon after his arrival in Arles, Paul Gauguin painted the same location, as a background to his portrait of Madame Ginoux. While the Van Gogh painting depicts the café as a room of isolation, Gauguin's Night Café at Arles mixes the concepts of isolation and spirited socializing, behind Mme. Ginoux. It was also acquired by Ivan Morozov and now hangs in the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts.
