We all love Van Gogh, right? Well here’s a strange way to connect painting to digital media. An Amsterdam museum is staging a show of digitally-retouched and animated Van Gogh paintings. It is being called Van Gogh’s “Ultimate Collection,” meant to surpass the quality of the original paintings.
Here’s one of the “animations”
This is part of the gallery
And some comparisons of the original (left) and digital (right)
“Van Gogh, The Ultimate Collection displays the 200 most important works of Vincent van Gogh. All these works are re-created. In addition, the exhibition includes seven unique 3D animations. This three-dimensional exploration reveals the movement, composition and hidden details in his paintings. You’ll see his works in a new and different way as well and will get a glimpse into the artistic mind of Vincent van Gogh.”
I’m not sure I’m sold quite yet. Any thoughts?
