This Tumblr celebrates the art in the background of our favorite movies

New, 7 comments

It's awful easy to forget just how much work goes into making a film — especially if you don't stick around for the credits. But one professional photographer named Martin Cole is shining light on at least one overlooked role with his Tumblr "Art in Film." The blog displays an impressive collection of film scenes that include some sort of visual art in the background — be it a Picasso or something manufactured just for the movie. Just think about it: most of the pieces of art are on screen for less than a second, yet each one had to be carefully selected or commissioned from scratch. It's all a day's work for under-praised production designers. Check out Cole's Tumblr here.
