Paintings Inspired by Music and Music Inspired by Paintings. Peter Medhurst Monday 25 March 2019

Sussex Area Special Interest Day of three lectures at The Ark, Mount Lane, Turners Hill, West Sussex RH10 4RA. 10am to 3pm.

It has long been recognised that the worlds of the visual and aural arts link with extraordinary power when one medium inspires the other. This lecture, which spans over 600 years of the arts, analyses and discusses a range of related works, bringing together the music of Martinu with the frescoes of Piero della Francesca, Botticelli’s Birth of Venus with Respighi’s Trittico botticelliano, Böcklin’s Isle of the Dead with Rachmaninoff’s symphonic poem and Poet Mondrian’s Broadway Boogie Woogie with the piano playing of Albert Ammons.
