This documentary series tells the story of intimate and tumultuous love stories in the context of art history. A love story is a fascinating detour that can lead us to discover and rediscover an artistic journey and the works that are born from its romantic encounters.
The series brings us into the foot steps of Amedao Modigliani and Jeanne Hébuterne, Lee Miller and Man Ray or Gerda Taro and Robert Capa who, together, photograph the Spanish civil war, in a communion of romantic, political and artistic commitment.
This love story is an excuse to narrate the lives of artists, their neuroses and narcissism, and to confront them to their alter ego, the other, their double.
Each of the couples of this collection answers the same questions : is love compatible with creation ? Can artists reveal themselves through romantic passion ? Does love bring a renewed energy to Art ?
