Like the awesome moving pictures in Harry Potter and the silliness of six second Vines, this video shows what art by Van Gogh would look like if the paintings he created could move. That is, how the candles would flicker, how the shadows would be cast, how the Sun would rise, how people would move, how the smoke would blow, how the ocean would look and so much more. It’s fantastic.
Artist Luca Agnani digitally added the effects to give the texture of Van Gogh, well, more texture. The 13 Van Gogh paintings that he animated were:
1. Fishing Boats on the Beach at Saintes-Maries 2. Langlois Bridge at Arles, The 3. Farmhouse in Provence 4. White House at Night, The 5. Still Life 6. Evening The Watch (after Millet) 7. View of Saintes-Maries 8. Bedroom 9. Factories at Asnieres Seen 10. White House at Night, The 11. Restaurant 12. First Steps (after Millet) 13. Self-Portrait
