When Ricciotto Canudo asserted: “We need Cinema in order to create the total art towards which all the others, since the beginning, have tended. The Seventh Art reconciles all others in this way”, everyone did not know to what extent these words would transcend. Thereby, cinema is always interested in a lot of themes, and one of them is art and artists, for this reason, it is not surprising then that a large number of painters have had a biopic, and all this had a great acceptance by the general public, because what until that moment was in the history books, could now be visualized through the big screen.
However, artworks are not, in principle, too attractive material to elaborate a narrative so, it is common that biographical films about these great creators to pay attention to their mood swings, their often difficult character and the historical context in which they moved. So that, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, El Greco, Caravaggio, Vermeer, Rembrandt, Goya, Turner, Renoir, Van Gogh, Rodin, Modigliani, Dalí, Picasso, Frida Kalho or Pollock and their respective films will be studied and analyzed in this investigation. Thus, we are able to recognize and bring the talent of each of them, and the circumstances in which some of his most famous works were developed.
