Paintings of Music
Just like love, music has always inspired people — from prehistoric ritual songs to modern computer generated music. The artists as the most impressible people who “feel” the world much more subtly tend to be the first to react on all changes and express their feelings with a help of the most natural for them method — painting.
Music in the art
Paintings showing musical instrument and people playing them can be found in all countries, all art styles of all the times. From Ancient Greece paintings showing people playing lira through Medieval times depicting troubadours singing their songs about chivalry and courtly love up to drawing the modern music icons — music has always been an integral part of fine art.
All types of art are connected to each other: painting can be completed by music, sculpture — by architecture, and poetry by theatre where the poems can be performed.
The development of particular art styles very often included the development of music, literature and theatre of the same movement. For example, Claude Debussy was a founder of Impressionist music. Just like artists who developed this style, he wanted to express his feelings and impressions through music. One of the greatest Russian artists Wassily Kandinsky loved music and wanted to express his feelings about it. This made him develop a new art style and become one of the founders of Abstract art.
Artworks with musical instruments as a main object play an important role of historical documents: with a help of these canvases we can follow the development of musical instruments, role of music in the social life and attitude to it.
