What was this film about how only real art can come from pain?

This film is about a man, an aspiring artist, who somehow comes to understand that true art comes from suffering and pain and that, as he has never endured hardship in his life, he cannot then ever create true art. He then goes out in search of suffering and making himself suffer so as to gain understanding and the ability to create true art. It is not Sullvian’s Travels, which has a similar premise and is a great film in its own right.

Nope that’s not the one, I think it was made sometime in the 80s or 90s. That still looks a good film though, I’ll give it a watch.
