    There`s an actual photo of Van Goch, and he looks quite different from the painting.

    Yes... because Realism is the epitome of art...

    I`d rather look at cave paintings from the paleolithic era than at computer generated poo that attempts to make actual art look "better."

    Using a computer to create is one thing. Using it to make something that is already beautiful "better" is retarded.

    Was this done to make it "look better"? I assumed that it was just bringing to reality how Van Gogh perceived himself. Which, of course, would be a bit different from how he actually looked. I don`t believe this was done to take away from the artistic value of the original work.

    It`s weird to think that paintings used to be the only method of visual representation. I once saw an ad for a photo studio from the early 1900`s that showed a photograph and a painting side by side. The ad said something like

    "Photographic technology has advanced so much that now you can hardly tell the difference between a painting and a photograph!"

    piperfawn, there are people on here that will argue black is white and up is down because that`s all they have in their life. You don`t have to justify yourself. It was interesting, do more plz.

    I didn`t get it. Like it was erasing the painting to show the reality underneath but like it lost some of it`s emotion. If it was another painting inside like the id and ego thoughts I would have dug that cause it`s like pretentious but nope just a digital painting/photo of the thing we were already looking at. Maybe it was supposed to illustrate that there are other artists capable of doing master level work but for a modern era but idk it lacked the passion of the mentally depraved.

    There is nothing depraved about his mind. Perhaps it wasn`t like yours in a lot of ways, but it doesn`t make him depraved. He was a genius.

    It did lose all of its emotion though. The eyes use the downward slanted angles, and darkening to make them look sad. Those eyes are sad.
