    Music and paintings constitute different forms of artistic presentation

    but human thoughts are at the core of both of them. Music and

    paintings are never isolated from each other, but rather common

    products of the human minds and social cultures of a specific historical

    period. Though they differ in the way of artistic representation, music

    and paintings both reflect human mentality, social contexts and the

    world we inhabit.

    Take an overview of the history of music and paintings, and we can

    detect prominent distinctions in music and paintings created in different

    periods that are largely brought about by the changes taking place in

    human thoughts which are in turn shaped by the culture and historical

    background of that time. Music and paintings are animated first-hand

    historical documents through whose acquaintance and understanding

    we can experience the uniqueness and fusion of cultures and the

    inimitable soul of every human being.

    Music and art have taught me how to think.

    1. Neoclassical paintings give prominence to clear outlines and complete structures while classical music created well-structured sonatas.

    2. Neoclassical paintings feature harmony and unity, lacking in intense changes of hues. The human expressions also tend to be tranquil. Much classical music is uniformly rhythmic and unchangeable in volumes.

    3. Neoclassical paintings depict meticulous details effortlessly while classical music begins to employ homophony rather than polyphony for rendition, strengthening uniform rhythm and weakening the rest so as to achieve clarity and simplicity.

    4. Neoclassicism rejects Rococo-style pomp and seeks simple and rational depictions while classical music shuns Baroque style and embraces simplicity.

    5. Neoclassicism upholds rationality while retaining a romanticist tinge. Classical music features exterior logic and order and interior complexity and unpredictability.

    6. Neoclassical paintings focus on symmetry, depicting the background with linear perspective while classical sonatas feature exposition and recapitulation.

    Human figure is sculptural, whose profile is set off by a simple background. Planarity: human and architecture are lined up. It upholds just deeds and the superiority of national interests over personal ones.

    Oath of the Horatii (1784) Jacques-Louis David

    Death of Marat (1793) Jacques-Louis David

    Historical painting, sculptural and symmetric figures: the right war horse is in symmetry with the left woman raising a baby while the white-garmented woman is in symmetry with the woman in red in the back. Both the front and back of the shield are displayed and the two soldiers stand opposite.

    ,

    Simple background, meticulous depiction, focuses on figures, realistic style, sharp contrast between bright and dark, glorification of worldly figures with religious imageries, and a little romantic.
