A selection of about 60 drawings and prints from the museum's permanent collection will explore the various ways in which music and music-making have been represented in Europe and the United States from the 15th through the 20th century. The exhibition will explore representations of sacred music in images depicting David and Saul, Apollo and the Muses, and Orpheus, as well as secular music addressing themes such as music and courtship, the café concert, dance, and synesthesia. Works by Rembrandt van Rijn, Jean Antoine Watteau, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Wassily Kandinsky, and John Cage will be featured.
The Cleveland Museum of Art is generously funded by Cuyahoga County residents through Cuyahoga Arts and Culture. The Ohio Arts Council helped fund this exhibition with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence, and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans.
