Van Gogh: Brush With Genius Blu-Ray Review

Van Gogh: Brush With Genius Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: Dive into the heart of Van Gogh s paintings. For the first time, discover in IMAX the fantastic colors and passionate brushwork of a great genius as they take on a new life before our eyes. Relive Vincent s life journey through his letters, see the places that inspired him, and the paintings. The film retraces the artist s footsteps, leading us through the painter s subject matter and sources of inspiration. From the Netherlands, to Arles, to Saint Rémy and Auvers-sur-Oise, we rediscover the places and landscapes that have inspired some of the most essential works in art history. From the dazzling yellow of the cornfields to the deep blue of the sky, the entire palette of one of our most flamboyant painters explodes to light up the screen.

Review: We love documentaries here at the Legion.  We’re also big art fans.  I’m a freelance and exhibiting artist myself and one of my favorite classic painters is Van Gogh, so I was excited to check out this IMAX documentary.

I didn’t realize that it was going to be SO in-depth.  From the locations Van Gogh painted and existed in to the very detail of his brush strokes, this documentary goes above and beyond to give you a glimpse into the past and the world of this enigmatic artist.  It’s a phenomenal documentary and we highly, highly recommend it.
