The tragic story of the life and death of Vincent van Gogh, one of the world’s most acclaimed painters, as told through his excellent works. Loving Vincent is the world’s first feature painted animation. It is the story of the life and controversy surrounding the death of Vincent van Gogh, told by the characters in his portraits. A devised plot allows for the mystery surrounding the death of this artist, so under-appreciated in his time, to be solved. Was it really suicide?
