Abstract [en]

The subject for this study is to describe music in the paintings. Some human may see pictures when they hear a special piece of music and others may hear music when they look at special paintings. Kandinsky writes in his book Klanger that "the sound of a colour is so obvious that it would be difficult to find any human being who connect light yellow with a bass tone on the piano. Instead we associate that colour with a descant tone on a piano e.g. Colours have a very strong impact on the organism as a whole which has been shown in different experiments. Kandinsky came to the conclusion that colours also have great impact on the mental experience or with other words on the human who connect light yellow with bass tone on the pano. Instead we associate that colour with a descant tone on a piano e.g. Colours have a very strong impact on the organism as a whole which has been shown in different experiments. Kandinsky came to the conclusion that colours also have great impact on the psyche." Painting can function as therapy in psychiatric disorders among other things.

As it may be a synesthetic factor that makes the colours sound there is a short description of synesthesis in this study. Kandinsky also meant the there is an spiritual aspect in painting  and in the experience of paintings. Kandinsky has constructed a theory of colours and the association to different musical instruments. The study analyzes some of Kandinsky's paintings which he associatet to his listening to Bach's and Schoenberg's music. Also Matiushin created a colour theory which he associated to music. He was both a musician and a painter. Further ar Cage and Schoenberg included in the study as both musicians and painters.

The paintings ar analyzed with a semantic method.

Two master studies ar included shich describe their actual musical composition work with their painting. They have followed the thread woven by Kandinsky. Kandinsky and Matiushin have many followers in our time.

The conclusion reached at was that paintings and music ar two parallell forms of art, shich inspire each other and may together  heighten the mental experience for the human being.
