Initially, it seemed like a good idea for Paul Gauguin to paint with Vincent van Gogh (in October of 1888). His working visit, however, lasted just two months.
In this clip, from the award-winning film Lust for Life, Kirk Douglas (as Vincent) and Anthony Quinn (as Gauguin) recreate scenes of the artists in Arles.
