In this essay the writer looks at four films about artists. The paper examines what the filmmakers wanted us to think of the artist and his or her work. The writer explains that two are documentaries while the other two are fictional films based on the life of the artist. The films discussed are: "Camille Claudel", "Vincent:The Life and Death of Vincent Van Gogh", "Superstar: The Life and Times of Andy Warhol" and "Basquiat".

From the Paper:

"This film is based on the biography of a French sculptor Camille Claudel. Right from the beginning of the film we see that Camille is a young woman who is very passionate about her art and that in this she goes against the conventions of the time she lives in and the class of society she is from. She becomes a pupil and an apprentice of Rodin, the famous French sculptor. He is older, more mature and already an established and respected artist. She becomes his mistress as well as his muse."
