A lot of the colors in the movie and the photography reminds me of Volpedo's paintings, in particular the scene with Juan in the bank when all of the prisoners had been freed:



Others:



There's also quite a few of his paintings that has the look of the forest where Juan gives his speech and some of the Irish flashbacks:





I saw another one that reminded me a lot of the final flashback but it's not on that site.

Never heard of him.  Thanks for the art lesson, I'm now very impressed with this guy's style.

Bertolucci used the top painting as the title's background for 1900.

Certain directors not only crib from film, but from art too. Leone has a hint of Andrew Wyeth too, with his intricate compositions, and gristled detail. Kubrick often reminded me of Lichtenstein. Hitchcock of Delveaux. As a matter of fact, Hitch hired Dali to design backdrops for Spellbound.

That's a great observation, Poggle, really - I love it! Smiley

What about this one?

Doesn't it remind you of the Ireland flashback? Shocked

There are two kinds of films in this world:those which stay,even when their genre is forgotten,and those which don't.
