Art in Film is the name of a Tumblr blog that essentially celebrates the artistic works found in both movies and television shows. Paintings, sculptures and more often add another layer to plots. Whether referencing something that adds more context to a scene or character, or perhaps simply introducing more culture to a film in general, there are many reasons why art has been featured prominently in such mediums.

From a portrait of Cher's mother in 'Clueless' to a visit to a gallery in 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off,' Art in Film boasts an extensive catalog of such sightings. The Art in Film Tumblr blog was created by professional photographer named Martin Cole. He posts screenshots against a white page, which essentially creates a gallery-like feeling online.
