Art History for Filmmakers Book

"Art History for Filmmakers" is the first ever comprehensive book that shows the relationship between cinema and art. Covering over 2000 of visual art and over 120 years of cinema history, the book demonstrates the wide variety of ways that painting has informed and inspired moving-image practice – including cinematography, production design and VFX. Movies have  adopted images, themes and techniques from the history of painting.
