Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis

Among interesting artists and musicians is this Lithuanian who was both a painter and composer. His paintings were often named to coincide with musical forms (such as Spring Sonata below), and his musical compositions often accompanied his painting cycles. Here are a few of his paintings:

Laivas Debesys (Boat Clouds)

Praeitis (The Past)

Pavasario Sonata: Andante (Spring Sonata: Andante)

Pavasario Sonata: Scherzo (Spring Sonata: Scherzo)

Many more paintings and clips of some of his music can be found at http://ciurlionis.licejus.lt/index_en.html or at http://ciurlionis.licejus.lt/index.html if you can read Lithuanian :)
