The Art of Music
Available in Stock
As Keats observed in his ‘Ode on a Grecian Urn’, music and art have been intertwined since antiquity. Published to accompany a major exhibition at the San Diego Museum of Art, this beautiful volume explores the connection from ancient pottery to contemporary video art. Superbly illustrated with more than 250 colour images, the essays examine the representation of music in the arts of Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas, collaborations between musicians and artists, and phenomena such as synaesthesia.
