"How to portray the life and work of a visual artist on screen has been an exciting and highly elusive challenge for filmmakers for nearly a century. As a painter, writer, and filmmaker, Josyph will lead an exploration into the most interesting films that have attempted this difficult task. Combining lesser-known works with award-winning classics, the course features Picasso at work in Clouzot’s THE MYSTERY OF PICASSO; David Hockney in Philip Haas’s A DAY ON THE GRAND CANAL WITH THE EMPEROR OF CHINA and in Bruno Wollheim’s A BIGGER PICTURE; Raymond Teller’s chronicle of inventor Tim Jenison’s attempt to duplicate a Vermeer in TIM’S VERMEER; Michel Bouquet in Gilles Bourdos’ exquisite RENOIR, about the great Pierre-Auguste Renoir and his son, the filmmaker Jean Renoir; and an intimate look at the daily life of a great Paris Museum in Nicholas Philibert’s beautiful LOUVRE CITY. The course also includes two tributes to Jean-Michel Basquiat: Tamra Davis’s THE RADIANT CHILD, and Josyph’s own A FEW THINGS BASQUIAT DID IN SCHOOL, featuring painter and teacher Cynthia Schechter, who had young Basquiat as part of her Art Squad in P.S. 101 in Brooklyn.
