Classic Art Comes to Life in Short Video “Beauty”
Italian director Rino Stefano Tagliafierro is an experimental animator who loves creating “situations of unusual worlds.” In his short video Beauty, Tagliafierro creates a “tribute to art and its disarming beauty.” The video shows several art pieces from classic painters like William-Adolphe-Bouguereau, Francois-Gerard, and Correggio, and then animates them, breathing new life into the classic canvases. A complete list of the paintings included in the video can be found here. And, if that’s not enough, there’s also an entire Tumblr featuring animated GIFs of each painting featured in the video.
