Music on canvas in Paris


Outside the George Pompidou Centre in Paris

Outside the George Pompidou Centre in Paris

By chance while signing the guestbook of the Brancusi sculpture exhibition yesterday, I noticed a ticket for the George Pompidou centre lying nearby. Somewhat had deliberately left it. I decided to see the Museum of Modern Art for the second time. On the way up the escalators, I couldn’t resist taking pictures and videos of Paris.

Why is this worth a blog?

I am a musician not a painter. Mussorgsky composed “Pictures at an Exhibition.” Has anyone else written music about art?

How about paintings about music or musicians or music instruments?

Below are paintings of guitar, piano, violin, and music scores that I found in the modern art museum in the Pompidou Centre. Can anyone guess the painters? Help me put the correct title and painter to each of these untitled images.

First an abstract of a guitar on a table.
