Last night I watched Van Gogh: A Brush with Genius. Loved it absolutely love it.
Very few people could actually pull off what he did in his work. Simply marvelous. That is why he is a master I would think. One of reason I really love this film.They showed close-ups of his work and held it there so you could study it. He was so tortured and spent some time in a mental institution per his own doing. He did invite Gaugin to come paint with him for a while, but even Gaugin couldn't handle the high strung Van Gogh. By the end of the movie I loved Van Gogh as a person. . .not only an artist. It is really quit worth watching and I want to watch it again just to capture more of his world. It was done by two people who truly love his work.
