Screen Gems – Artists on celluloid

From Standing Room Only, 1:40 pm on 19 November 2017

What is it about the movies and artists? We love watching people slapping that paint on - whether it's Timothy Spall as Turner, Colin Firth creating The Girl with a Pearl Earring, or Jack painting Rose on the Titanic.

Clearly it's much more visually engaging than watching someone writing a book or composing a symphony. Irene Gardiner was inspired for this week's Screen Gems by a new film about Vincent Van Gogh – Loving Vincent. Irene’s picks include Pollock and Colin McCahan I Am.
