“The greater the artist, the greater the doubt. Perfect confidence is granted to the less talented as a consolation prize.”

Today was our monthly meeting of The Art Club of McKinney meeting. After the general meeting, artist of the month, raffle and refreshments, we watched the movie “Loving Vincent.”

Loving Vincent is a 2017 experimental animated biographical drama film about the life of a painter Vincent van Gogh, and, in particular, about the circumstances of his death. It is the first fully painted animated feature film.[7] The film, written and directed by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman, is a Polish-UK co-production, funded by the Polish Film Institute, and partially through a Kickstarter campaign.

First conceived as a seven-minute short movie in 2008,[7] Loving Vincent was realized by Dorota Kobiela, a painter herself, after studying the techniques and the artist’s story through his letters.[9]

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 over 100 painters.[10] The film premiered at the 2017 Annecy International Animated Film Festival.[2] It won Best Animated Feature Film Award at the 30th European Film Awards in Berlin and was nominated for Best Animated Feature at the 90th Academy Awards.

As you can see, the artwork was stunning, colorful, and the story line intriguing. Everyone enjoyed the film.
