Films ‘inspired’ by Paintings

Popular paintings that may—or may not?—have been the inspiration behind films… Without denying the sheer enjoyability of such speculations it is sometimes a bit of a leap of faith to claim that not just one or a few sequences but a whole film or at the very least the whole ‘feel’ of a film has been inspired by one single painting. Nevertheless, it would be unfair to ignore an obvious trend to indulge in this. That is why McIver’s study (see bibliography) is so valuable because it focuses precisely on how filmmakers use images from paintings and on the links between the two art forms.
