Artist & Muse via Robert Doisneau

Today marks the centennial of the great French photography Robert Doisneau and though he wasn't a celebrity photographer --  the kind we obviously have the greatest use for as film obsessives -- he did them on occassion. I love this shot of one of the great auteur/muse pairings (both onscreen and off) actor Jean Marais (left) and Jean Cocteau (right). 

Here's another of Pablo Picasso and Françoise Gilot.

Remember when Anthony Hopkins and Natasha McElhone pretended to be them? I know I know. No one saw Surviving Picasso (1996)... but I did because Julianne Moore was Dora Maar (another Picasso victim... excuse me, lover!) and with Julianne I martyr myself to completism. 

If you could photograph one auteur/muse pairing, who would it be?

I would go for Julianne Moore and Todd Haynes circa Far From Heaven so I could "borrow" all the amazing costumes and sets.

Tony Leung Chiu Wai and Wong Kar-wai. Toshiro Mifune and Akira Kurosawa. Jean-Luc Godard and Anna Karina.

And of course, all of Pedro Almodóvar and his various muses.

good answers all. Especially Pedro and muses. I feel like there needs to be a group shot where all the women he's ever used more than 3 times are sort of hanging all over him. in one big doggy pile of love
