In Cafe Terrace at Night by Van Gogh, I can see a cafe with chairs and tables outside. There are people sitting outside a cafe. There is a waiter serving customers at the cafe. Some people are walking down a cobbled street. It is night- time but the street is well-lit because of the lights from the cafe. The painting makes me feel excited because the place seems quiet and people look relaxed. I’d love to be there.
In Stage Rehearsal by Degas, I can see ballet dancers rehearsing on stage. The director / composer is directing the dancers. Some of the girls have their hands at the back of their necks. The painting makes me feel anxious because the rehearsal seems to be very tough.
In The Persistence of Memory by Dali, I can see melting watches. There is a seaside and rocks in the background. It is a barren landscape. The painting makes me feel confused as it is an unusual landscape.
