Italian animator Rino Stefano Tagliafierro breathes subtle (and not-so-subtle) life into dozens of classical paintings in his captivating short, Beauty. [Fair warning: here be nudity, sex, violence and death. Sometimes all at once.]
I really love these 2.5D animations of classical paintings by Rino Stefano Tagliafierro. He says that they are "a tribute to the art and her disarming beauty." Some are more inviting and evocative than the actual painting. I want to keep getting into the scene. And a few are quite disturbing.
