Blake was a painter and a writer, Ingres was a painter and a musician, Ciurlionis (1875 - 1911) was a painter, a writer and a musician. Undeservedly, Ciurlionis attracts little attention except in Lithuania or among art and music scholars around the world. Most of his paintings are displayed in M. K. Ciurlionis National Museum of Art in Kaunas. Visitors can also listen to a selection of Ciurlionis’s compositions in the music auditorium inside the museum.

This small museum is about a 2-3 hour project. The admission is very modest (4 Euros for adults, 2 Euros for students and seniors) making it a bargain. Čirulionis was something of a polymath in his short 36 years. He is best known as a composer although he studied painting and painted for just six years. In this time he produced roughly 200 paintings that are remarkable for their symbolistic influence. His color palette is that of twilight and he paints the physical and spiritual twilight moments between worlds. The images are arresting and it is easy to see why he is considered Lithuania's greatest painter.You can also purchase recordings of his music in the gift shop and I recommend you try out the music section of the museum where you can hear the compositions of your choice. Don't miss this.

Ciurlonis is for me something special. His paintings - like taken from a dream - make you wonder about life, about destiny, about our fate. In the museum you can as well listen to his compositions as he wrote music as well. For me the funeral symphony cycle is the best but pick your choice. Still if you are interested in art, even a little bit, it is worth going

Once your coat is in the cloakroom and you are wearing the special blue slip on slippers you can explore this gallery which I found fascinating.
It focuses on the work of M.K Ciurlionis who was a man of many talents including composing music but here his art works take centre stage although it would have be nice to be able to hear his music somewhere in the exhibition. His work is both Lithuanian and cosmic with titles such as Etetnity, the zodiac and fairy tale. It is quite a unique take on the world.
Also in the gallery at the moment is an exhibition called "New Acquisitions -2011 - 2016 which was thought provoking and colourful.
