The Best Art Movies

List Criteria: Movies must feature art prominently.

A list of the best art movies. This is a list not of "art films" but of movies that feature art as a central theme. We tried to include all of the best ones here, but if you believe we missed one, please feel free to add it to the list yourself. All genres have been included. Movies about art can be fascinating and these are the best art films of that genre. The drama, adventure, and politics involved in the creation of famous art can be mind-boggling. And as far as artists go, let us not forget that, "There is no great genius without some touch of madness."

While we might not all enjoy going to the museum to view our favorite works of art, the art films on this list are incredibly accessible and can be enjoyed by almost anyone. If you don't see your favorite art film on this list of the best art films, make sure to add it so others can get a little bit of your good (art film) taste.

What are the best art movies? Take a look at this list and you'll see what are the top movies about artists.
