Seeing Sound: Music, imagery and inspiration

Tue 8 October 2019 - Sun 12 January

Fitzwilliam Museum

Can we listen to a painting? What does music look like?

This exhibition brings together a remarkable range of works from the Museum’s collections to explore the ways in which artists and composers have engaged in a dialogue between sight and sound.

Artistic and musical collaborations for the stage sit alongside works which employ music-making as a visual metaphor for love. Others reference music’s ability to trigger an emotional response without a visual cue. The tension between abstract and figurative, graphic and sonic, is alluded to through the display of musical scores alongside drawings and prints.

The exhibition includes works by Watteau, Rossetti, Renoir and Picasso and musical manuscripts by Handel, Brahms, Stravinsky and the Founder of the Museum, Lord Fitzwilliam.

Cost: Free

Ages: All ages
