A Museum Quality Print of Cafe Table with Absinthe painted by Vincent Van Gogh at Paris in 1887. The scene is a still life showing a bottle of water and full glass of absinthe on a table in a cafe, with the viewer looking out the window of the cafe to the street. Absinthe could be a toxic drink but it became a favorite among people during the latter part of the 19th century including artists such as Van Gogh. Absinthe was a highly alcoholic distilled spirit made from botanicals including the flower and leaves of Grande Wormwood, Green Anise and Sweet Fennel, it usually had a natural green color but could also be distilled to be clear. Absinthe was usually drank with sugar and water, a special spoon would hold a sugar cube on top of the glass and iced water was then trickled over the sugar cube, this gave the drink its characteristic cloudiness.
