Exporting vertex color as texture map using Mel or Python commands

I am able to export a vertex color map using the paint vertex Color tool attribute maps export button, but this does not dump out mel code in the script editor for me to look at.
I have also looked up in the mel and python docs and have found this command: artAttrPaintVertexCtx, but the documentation is very poor and I can't seem to figure out how to use it.

Help is appreciated in either mel or pyhton. This is what I have so far (which does not work)
import pymel.core as pm
pm.artAttrPaintVertexCtx('artAttrPaintVertexCtx10'  )
pm.artAttrPaintVertexCtx('artAttrPaintVertexCtx10'  , edit = True, esf = 'c:\attrMap.tif' )

error generated:
# Error: RuntimeError: file C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Maya2013\Python\lib\site-packages\pymel\internal\pmcmds.py line 134: Failed to export the attribute map. #
