Stunning Animated Fine Art

Rino Stefano Tagliafierro animiert klassische Gemälde und das geht sehr weit über die herkömmlichen animierten Kunst-GIFs hinaus und darüber hinaus erzählt er mit den insgesamt 116 Gemälden auch noch eine Geschichte. In seinem Tumblr findet man noch jede Menge GIFs aus dem Clip, hier die Liste der verwendeten Arbeiten. Erinnert ein bisschen an Umberto Ecos zweigeteilte Abhandlung über Die Geschichte der Schönheit und Hässlichkeit in der Kunst – jedenfalls: Ganz großartig!

Beauty has been invoked, re-figured and described since antiquity as a fleeting moment of happiness and the inexhaustible fullness of life, doomed from the start to a redemptive yet tragic end.

In this interpretation by Rino Stefano Tagliafierro, this beauty is brought back to the expressive force of gestures that he springs from the immobility of canvas, animating a sentiment lost to the fixedness masterpieces.

Its as though these images which the history of art has consigned to us as frozen movement can today come back to life thanks to the fire of digital invention.
A series of well selected images from the tradition of pictorial beauty are appropriated, (from the renaissance to the symbolism of the late 1800s, through Mannerism, Pastoralism, Romanticism and Neo-classicism) with the intention of retracing the sentiment beneath the veil of appearance.
