Loving Vincent is the worldâ€™s first fully oil-painted feature film. Vincent van Gogh is not only famous for his paintings, but also for his tortured life, notably for cutting off his ear and shooting himself while painting at his easel; painting to the bitter end of his unhappy misunderstood life.
No other artist has attracted more legends than Vincent van Gogh. Variously labelled a martyr, a lustful satyr, a madman, a genius and a layabout, the real Vincent is at once revealed in his letters, and obscured by myth and time. He is the worldâ€™s totemic â€˜tortured artistâ€™. Loving Vincent explores Vincentâ€™s life and work by bringing to life some of Vincent van Goghâ€™s most inspirational paintings to tell his story.
