Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child 2009 "In 1986 filmmaker Tamra Davis shot one of the only interviews with her friend Jean-Michel Basquiat…" This movie includes beautiful footage of paintings, interviews with artists, art dealers and friends.
Pollock 2000 Directed by Ed Harris, who also plays Jackson Pollock. Marcia Gay Harden plays Lee Krasner.
Frida 2002. Selma Hayek plays Frida Kahlo and Alfred Molina is Diego River. (The book, Frida, is amazing but I haven't seen this movie yet.)
Max 2002. Set in troubled post-WWI Germany, this tells the story of an art dealer (John Cusack) and a young,aspiring painter, Adolf Hitler - intense, ambitious and ultimately diabolical.
Girl with a Pearl Earring 2003. Based on the novel by Tracy Chevalier about Vermeer. Stars Colin Firth and Scarlett Johansson. Can get a bit sappy but very visually beautiful especially the scene about grinding paints.
Goya's Ghosts 2006. Director Milos Forman, stars Javier Bardem and Natalie Portman. Very beautiful visually.
