Links between music and the visual arts

Postby Ted » Thu May 19, 2016 12:26 am

It isn't common with me, but given the right circumstances a good painting can certainly trigger improvisation: http://www.pianostreet.com/smf/index.php?topic=45145.0

Harold Knight's wife was actually more famous than he was, but his paintings of women in various domestic surroundings seem to me outstanding, especially in his treatment of light.

And what about this man, whose superb music I have loved for years. His paintings reveal a character as powerfully original as his sounds: http://www.davidthomasroberts.com/
