From Marek Janas:

Re: Paintings really can be heard, scientist says (Sept. 7): Probably more popular than “hearing” painting (Kandinsky) is “seeing” music. I should like to remark that Polish dramaturgist and painter WITKACY (see, e.g.,, 1885-1939, experimented in painting under hallucinogenic products (peyotl, meskaline) and that resulted, amongs other, in “painting” music, e.g., symphonies as he heard them. I remember these “musical” paintings but, unfortunately, cannot find any electronic version to show here.
