Music and Modern Art adopts an interdisciplinary approach to the relationship between these two fields of creative endeavor. Its subjects are diverse and the musicians range from Alexander Scriabin to the jazz bandleader Paul Whiteman, and from Arnold Schoenberg to Edgard Varese to Morton Feldman. Among the visual arts treated here, painting predominates, from Pierre-Auguste Renoir's Impressionism and Gustav Klimt's Viennese decorative schemes, to Vasily Kandinsky's and Piet Mondrain's abstractions, and to Abstract Expressionalism. Attention is also given to American film as well as to the esoteric form of the theatrical light show Music and Modern Art is an important addition to the study of 20th century culture.
