Agents from the Agencia Tributaria—the Spanish IRS—announced the find of a priceless Van Gogh which disappeared from the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Vienna, Austria. Dated in 1889, the painting "Cypress, sky and field" was discovered in a safe deposit box that belonged to a Spanish fraudster.
Imagine, if you will, a feature-length animation about the life and death of post-Impressionist painter Vincent Van Gogh. Now imagine that the animation is made entirely from paintings created in Van Gogh's iconic style, and you're beginning to understand why we're so excited about Loving Vincent.

Like the awesome moving pictures in Harry Potter and the silliness of six second Vines, this video shows what art by Van Gogh would look like if the paintings he created could move.

While Van Gogh was an Impressionist painter, I've always found his artwork to be pretty surreal, with his daub-paint effect warping landscapes. Artist Serena Malyon bent their reality even more, adding tilt-shift photography effects to 16 of his popular works.
Donald Olson, an astrophysicist at Texas State University has a habit of taking well-known historical facts and turning them upsidown. Using the stars and Moon and a little bit of math, he's re-dated the original running of Marathon in 491-490 BC, precisely determined the spot in which Edvard Munch painted "The…
