Art in Film is the kind of online resource you don’t imagine is likely to come in especially handy in your life, but you find yourself scrolling through transfixed anyway. Run on a submissions basis by its curator Martin Cole, the set pulls together every imaginable example of an artwork (real or imaginary) included in film or on TV, from the famous scene at the potter’s wheel in Ghost to Lisa admiring Matisse’s Cut Outs in The Simpsons.

As reference blogs go it’s an impressive feat; the sheer number of film and TV shows included is frankly mind-blowing and it’s a testament to the self-referential nature of the art and film industries that artworks can so aptly aptly reinforce a film’s message. I’m entertaining notions of a future blog recording moments on film where characters consult Martin’s website, breaking some firmly-erected fourth wall… but that’s for another time.
