The Textured Movements Of Music

The Pattern and Textures of painting that has expression of rhythm of music and the emotion it provides or both. It shows that even in the darkest scares to something simple and bright, music has had it significance since the earlier times and is strong enough to be expressed through painting, sculpting and new inventions. 

The Musical Contest between Apollo and Marsyas, Cornelis van Poelenburgh, 1630, From the collection of: Hallwyl Museum
It shows how music is strong enough to create competition as it did in this painting, what drew my attention was the gathering a people to see a performance it just shows how far back concerts dated.
Russian musical culture - Tchaikovsky and Ballet dancers, Susanne Ruseler, 2014, From the collection of: The Sand Museum
This sculpture caught my eyes for the fact it was from sand this is of the man who composed the infamous swan lake and the nutcracker. I like how the model shows the elegance of the dancing and score.
Red-Figure Amphora with Musical Scene, Niobid Painter, 460-450 BC (Classical), From the collection of: The Walters Art Museum
This shows how important music can be, to me it shows a ceremonial version of it, with the three women as in some type of wedding or pre-ritual. In, the description it says it was a music session.
Still Life with Musical Instruments and Books, Bartholomeo Bettera, Mid-17th century, From the collection of: The Israel Museum, Jerusalem
Due to its originality and classical instruments those guitars look like mandolins and the piano looks like a classical one, then the violin. Which is the foundation of most music, it shows royalty.
Music Box, Fabergé (firm); Wigström, Henrik Immanuel (workmaster), 1907, From the collection of: Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens
This brings back memories of my Nana god rest her soul she always kept a music box it has such a simple design but it always has an antique look and its one of the earliest playback systems.
Musical Angel, Rosso Fiorentino, Around 1522, From the collection of: Uffizi Gallery
This represented peace to me soft angelic music in my head I hear harps and such, it shows the total opposite of whats popular today, it puts me in the mind of the bible with the angel Gabriel's Horn.
Long-Case Musical Clock, Clock movement by Jean-François Dominicé (French, 1694 - after 1754), about 1712, From the collection of: The J. Paul Getty Museum
In my opinion this is a moment where mechanical movement and music were combined in a clever way to remind someone of a certain time, some made a bell noise, but some newer models play melodies now.
Music on the Karl Johan Street, Edvard Munch, 1889, From the collection of: Kunsthaus Zürich
This reminded me of a parade like the Mardi Gras, Jazz Fest and Second Line in New Orleans. The energy from live brass instruments is so big that even when you're not included you still feel good.
Bagpipe Player, Hendrick ter Brugghen, 1624, From the collection of: National Gallery of Art, Washington DC
I liked his posture on getting the correct form and how focused he is, but I chose this due to the history & culture the bagpipe carries with the Scottish. Fun Fact: It was an Byzantine instrument.
Music Machine, Sonni, 2010/2013, From the collection of: graffitimundo
You can see the cartoonish vibe of it, it has smiles everywhere however, it's most relatable because it reminds me of a studio room with the tape player, fader, knobs, speaker, piano and Vinyl
