    Music and painting are two of the most widespread and intertwined fields of art. The interaction between the two of them is very common, which can be observed in the names of theoretical painting concepts that derive from music. The thesis explores the influence that music has had on painting both in the past and in the present. The first part of my theoretical section largely deals with the connections between music and painting. I focused on different human senses which allow us to perceive and comprehend both the environment and art. Without them, information, which is obtained from the environment, would prove inaccessible to us. Furthermore, I explored the colour and sound, their origin and their similarities and differences. The next part of the theoretical section deals mostly with different authors that play an important role in the development of both painting and music. I was mostly interested in their works of art that were created with the help of both painting and music. What also interested me was their way of perceiving the connections and common ground between them. I focused on those authors whose research seemed the most important and interesting to me. I also described some of their works that shows us how they intertwined music with painting. I was especially interested in synesthesia, a neurological phenomenon of linking different senses. I observed how synesthetes simultaneously experience various shades of colour, sound sensations and intensity of flavours. The last part of the theoretical section deals with art therapy that is closely linked with music and painting. I was especially interested in its positive effects and its use in different institutions. My empirical part consists of two different exercises that six people have taken part in. The first exercise consists of listening to four different songs that the participants then have to paint. The second exercise focused mainly on synesthesia. I was the first participant, and the other five people included in the research have different experience with both music and painting. While three of them study fine arts and two of them are familiar with music, the last one is not completely familiar with either of them. I analyzed the paintings made during the exercises in order to compare them and find their similarities and differences. I finished my thesis with a pedagogical section by making a lesson plan for pupils in primary schools. In this lesson plan, I also linked the arts of painting and music, and so wanted to encourage the pupils to discover various cultural areas and embrace their own sensations and perceptions.
