There cannot be a more fitting tribute to the master painter's legacy.

Art lovers rejoice, because the world will soon have a movie on the famous Dutch Painter, Vincent Van Gogh.

According the movie's website, "Loving Vincent" is the first fully painted feature film in the world.

Directed by Polish painter and director Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman, this movie has so far required contributions from over a hundred painters, as the movie features a mind-blowing 12 oil paintings per second, all of which is an imitation of the famous painter's style. The movie will detail the story of Van Gogh’s life, his work and his tragic death. Watch the fantastic trailer and feel awed at the sheer grandeur and ambition of this undertaking.
