Throughout his film career, Woody Allen has relied on art to help set the scene, reflect a character's mood, or act as a catalyst between characters. The main characters in Annie Hall discuss art while visiting New York museums. In Match Point, a painting is used to reflect the mood of the leading man. What you might not notice is that the background of many of Allen's scenes include handpicked works of art. Sometimes they appear to give a picture of the city, as in Vicky Cristina Barcelona, and other times their placement is much subtler. From across Allen's career, here are the The Best Art References in Woody Allen Films.
