"Music and Modern Art" adopts an interdisciplinary approach to the relationship between these two fields of creative endeavor. Its subjects are diverse: the musicians range from Alexander Scriabin to the jazz bandleader Paul Whiteman, and from Arnold Schoenberg to Edgard Varese. The visual artists include Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Gustav Klimt, Vasily Kandinsky, and Piet Mondrian.
