Lady at The Virginal depicts a woman sitting at a piano appearing to be receiving a piano lesson. There is what looks to be a cello laying on the floor, as if the woman receiving the lesson may be one of many talents.
Guitars and Mandolins, Josep Maria Sert, 1931, From the collection of: Fundación Banco Santander
Guitars and Mandolins depicts several men sitting what looks to be outside leaning on their guitars. The shading of what looks like clouds in the background and the yellow sky seems as if the setting of this painting may take place in a rural desert area.
The Band, Edward Burra, 1934, From the collection of: British Council
The Band shows a band and what looks to be the music acts on a stage. From the tall brown pillars, you can tell that it could be a play or performance. The viewpoint seems to be from the audience though you can't actually see any audience members. Again, this shows the many forms you can use to enjoy music and art (performing).
Flamenco songs and dances, JULIO ROMERO DE TORRES, 1917, From the collection of: Museo Julio Romero de Torres

Jazz II, Maxwell Taylor, 1991/1991, From the collection of: Art Museum of the Americas
Jazz II depicts two men who are saxophone players. The jagged blue, red, pink and green lines are what gave me the idea of music and medium. The way the artist gave the saxophone it's smooth lines and the suits it's jagged edges gives you and idea of the smooth melodies that are produced from saxophones and the strong persons behind them.
