Portrait of the Artist

Few artists have been the subject of as many cinematic portraits as Vincent Van Gogh. As played by Kirk Douglas, Tim Roth, Jacques Dutronc, Andy Serkis and Benedict Cumberbatch, the painter has been portrayed as a deeply troubled soul whose creativity is inextricably linked to his psychological state. Willem Dafoe now takes on the role of the Dutch artist in Julian Schnabel's ('Basquiat', 'Before Night Falls', 'The Diving Bell and the Butterfly') powerful 'At Eternity's Gate'. To celebrate the film's UK release exclusively in cinemas and on Curzon Home Cinema, we have curated a selection of films focusing on artists' lives and their work. As well as Mauriace Pialat's acclaimed 'Van Gogh', the resplendent animation 'Loving Vincent' and documentary 'Vincent: The Life and Death of Vincent Van Gogh', there are portraits of painters from the 15th century (Tarkovsky's magisterial 'Andrei Rublev'), 19th century (Mike Leigh's Mr. Turner, with cinematographer Dick Pope stunningly recreating the era) and the early 20th century (Julie Taymor's inventive 'Frida') as well as studies of artists as diverse as Banksy, Kusama, Basquiat, Hockney, Ai Weiwei, and Andy Goldsworthy. Together, they offer a fascinating tapestry of artists' lives on film.
