Recent Artist Documentaries

I love documentaries, especially about art and artists. Recently I've seen two that are interesting.

"Cutie and the Boxer" is the story about New York artists Ushio Shinohara and his wife, Noriko. This 2013 documentary shows their relationship in their 40 year marriage as Husband and Wife and Artists. Ushio is famous for being a "Boxing" painter and Noriko for her "Cutie" illustrations.
