Loving Vincent is the first painted animation film in the world. Every frame of the 94 minutes film was painted by hand. More than 65,000 pictures were painted, 12 canvasses per second. More than 125 artists bring in Loving Vincent the artist to life with their brushstrokes. It took the directors Hugh Welchman and Dorota Kobiela from Breakthru Productions a total of four years to make the film.
The movie offers a unique glimpse behind the scenes of the making of the much discussed, painted, animation film about Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890). Seventy of the most beautiful pictures painted for the film will be coming to ’s-Hertogenbosch. It will be the first and, as of today, only place in the world where a unique exhibition will be dedicated to the remarkable production.
Naast de 70 mooiste werken die in de film zijn gebruikt, zijn er verschillende beeldfragmenten en presentaties die laten zien hoe de schilderijen tot leven worden gebracht.
Bezoekers komen dankzij de expositie meer te weten over het leven van Vincent van Gogh en het unieke maakproces van deze film.
As well as the 70 most beautiful works that have been used in the film, various picture fragments and presentations will show how the paintings were brought to life. Visitors to the exhibition will learn more about Vincent van Gogh, his life and the unique way in which the film was made.
Having such a large exhibition at Het Noordbrabants Museum, where we have the space to actually show the best paintings from the film in a museum setting, will really enrichen the experience of seeing the film.Directors Hugh Welchman and Dorota Kobiela
Van Gogh in Het Noordbrabants Museum
Het Noordbrabants Museum is the only museum in the southern part of the Netherlands to exhibit original works by Vincent van Gogh. They are on display in Het Verhaal van Brabant (The Story of Brabant): to be exact, in a pavilion devoted to Van Gogh and his Brabant period. Ten of Van Gogh’s works are currently included in the museum’s permanent display. They are all pieces that Van Gogh painted in Nuenen, the place in Brabant where he spent most of his life as an artist. They allow the museum to tell the story of Vincent Gogh’s Brabant period.Buy tickets
