Here’s something special for everyone to see, whether you’re an art lover or novice this movie is a must see

Recently released ‘Loving Vincent’ is a 2017 biographical animated drama film about the life of painter Vincent van Gogh, and in particular, the circumstances of his death. It is the first fully painted animated feature film. It is written and directed by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman. The development was funded by the Polish Film Institute.

Each of the film's 65,000 frames is an oil painting on canvas, using the same technique as Van Gogh, created by a team of 115 painters. The film premiered at the 2017 Annecy International Animated Film.

Van Gogh painted over 800 paintings in just 8 years, of which only one sold to the public, though he would go on to be named by art historians as the father of modern painting.
