Film Description:
"Although when he was alive, Vincent Van Gogh hadn't enough money to pay for his art materials, a hundred years later his painting 'The Irises' sold for an unprecedented sum at a New York auction. This animated short, excerpted from Jacques Giraldeau's 1989 film Le Tableau noir, takes a loving look at the masterwork."
