I do love a game of Spot the Famous Painting in films

The Da Vinci Code, of course, is full of Leonardo, but I prefer my Last Supper posed by beggars, as in Viridiana

Ah yes, An American in Paris. Gene Kelly's character is a heel, but audiences are so busy ooh-la-la-ing over MGM's soundstage mock-up of Montmartre they don't care, and neither, really, does the film, which finally gives way to a barely relevant 16-minute ballet inspired by the work of painters such as Dufy, Manet and Toulouse-Lautrec. The results, as so often with director Vincente Minnelli, pass all the way through kitsch to emerge somewhere on the side of sublime.

Minnelli once again dodges the kitsch bullet in Lust for Life, which ends up a moving study of Van Gogh, though artist biopics that aim to be tasteful, such as Girl with a Pearl Earring, usually end up as upmarket ersatz, best appreciated by folk who think film is »
