This visually stunning documentary about the most popular painter of the past century features the world famous collection of the Rijksmuseum Vincent van Gogh in Amsterdam. A museum dedicated exclusively to van Gogh would have been inconceivable to the painter himself he felt he was too misunderstood by the public to be appreciated. How could he have imagined that his paintings, 100 years after his death, would sell for millions of dollars?
This beautiful profile of Vincent van Gogh and his work was filmed at locations in the Netherlands, Belgium and France, and features dozens of his most beloved paintings. The artists role in the Post-Impressionist movement is assessed, and his visual style and technique are examined in a way that will help the viewer appreciate Vincents revolutionary contributions to modern art. This loving portrait of a tormented but brilliant artist will be enjoyed by van Goghs countless fans for years to come.
