Watch Classical Paintings Come Alive, in Beauty

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.]


The film, Tagliafierro writes, is "a path of sighs through the emotions of life. A tribute to the art and her disarming beauty."
