Sitting on the terrace outside Auberge Ravoux on 14 July 1890, Bastille Day, Vincent painted the Auvers-sur-Oise town hall, which was partly obscured by lanterns and bunting strung between trees in celebration of the national holiday. Vincent gave the painting to his innkeeper, Arthur Gustave Ravoux.
