Principles of Music and Painting.
Presley, Horton
This text consists of a series of classroom handouts created over a two-year period as a supplement to the text used in a junior college music and visual arts appreciation course. These materials are designed to be presented in a one-quarter course in fine arts appreciation for nonmajors who are unlikely to take further courses in either music or painting. Chapters cover the following: (1) an introduction to fine arts appreciation; (2) an introduction to music; (3) the basic fundamentals of music, harmony, and musical form; (4) the meaning and interpretation of music; (5) an introduction to painting; (6) the basics on the use of line, color, texture, form, space, and balance in painting; (7) the major types of media in which art work is executed; (8) the general intention and meaning of paintings; and (9) the unity and diversity of music and painting. Questions for study or for review appear at the end of each chapter. Instructions for student fine arts projects and fine arts term papers are given along with forms to describe the student's plans, for approval by the instructor. A 61-item bibliography on art and music is also included. (JW)
