Dr Michael Tucker considers the relationship between painting and music through the work of Ivon Hitchens and other artists.

Ivon Hitchens sought to make a song of nature in paint but he wasn’t the only artist directly influenced by music. Dr Michael Tucker considers painting’s relation to music through the work of Hitchens and other artists including Wassily Kandinsky, Piet Mondrian, Joan Miró, Robert Motherwell, Antoni Tàpies, Joan Mitchell, Sean Scully, Harvey Daniels and Alan Davie.


Dr. Michael Tucker is a lecturer, writer and painter. He contributed to the 2007 Pallant House Gallery publication Eye Music: Kandinsky, Klee And All That Jazz and wrote an essay for the catalogue for Ivon Hitchens: Space Through Colour.
