Six Pix: Artists

Six Pix presents a sextet of movie posters representing a particular actor/director/genre. You pick the one you feel is visually the most artistic or best sums up the film.

This Six Pix is a stroke of genius.


Included are: Rembrandt (1936); Moulin Rouge (1952); Lust for Life (1956); My Left Foot (1989); Artemisia (1997); and Frida (2002).

Movie posters are most definitely an art form—even more so with these artist biopics. So which of the six do you think does justice to its respective famous painter? We have Rembrandt, the grandmaster of the Dutch Golden Age Baroque movement; two Post-Impressionist virtuosos: Frenchman Toulouse-Lautrec (Moulin Rouge) and Hollander Van Gogh (Lust for Life); Irish writer/painter and cerebral palsy sufferer Christy Brown (My Left Foot); and two female maestros: Renowned Italian Baroque painter Artemisia and Mexican surrealist/folk artist Frida Kahlo. Judging solely by the one-sheets presented here My Left Foot is a step ahead of the others.
