Loving Vincent

This feature-length painted animation — the first film of its kind — explores the life and unusual death of Vincent Van Gogh via depictions of his artworks.

On July 27, 1890 a gaunt figure stumbled down a drowsy high street at twilight in the small French country town of Auvers.

The man was carrying nothing; his hands clasped to a fresh bullet wound leaking blood from his belly.

This was Vincent van Gogh, then a little known artist; now the most famous artist in the world.

His tragic death has long been known – what has remained a mystery is how and why he came to be shot.


 

"Animating Van Gogh's bold impasto, already kinetic on the canvas, could have been merely superfluous. As moving pictures, though, the brushstrokes have an unexpected pull..."

Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times

"You will marvel at the art in this labor-intensive labor-of-love."

Bob Mondello, NPR

"An engrossing exploration of the artist's final days rendered in his signature painting style."

Serena Donadoni, Village Voice
