Today's contemporary artists, art dealers, curators, and collectors still don't understand the exact purpose for which abstract painting came into being, since the mainstream of art moved to the United States after the Second World War.
The reason for the birth of abstract painting was to 'give the power of music to the painting as well, in order to move the observer more strongly and deeply.
W. Kandinsky created abstract painting with this intention. Kandinsky painted the world's first abstract painting in 1910. （See Figure 1 ）below.
He created it inspired by the paintings of Monet and the music of Wagner. Note 2
Together with his colleague at the Bauhaus in Germany, Paul Klee, an accomplished violinist and musician from a musical family, Kandinsky promoted abstract painting for musical expressive effect. (Note 3)
The constructivist abstract painter Albers, who went to New York to teach at Black Mountain College.it was not Kandinsky.
Albers played a minor role at the Bauhaus compared to Klee Kandinsky, the international star of German art.
He did not seem to understand the work of both artists accurately and was unable to convey to the young artist the essence of the study of abstract painting, the "realization of the musical state of painting".
As a result, the mainstream of abstract painting was not inherited by anyone in America. (Note 1)
This is why the contemporary art world, with a few exceptions, is still confined to two stereotypes
① Paintings and sculptures are works of art that are still and immobile, and the viewer is expected to stand in front of them and take a good look at them.
② Thus, they are not realizing the expressive power of "a structure in which the screen is made up of parts, in which the moving parts have rhythm and melody, and in which the segments made up of those parts are repeated over and over on the screen like music.
By the way, it is a truism that innovation, or "the creation of new ideas, inventions and discoveries," is, as James W. Young put it, "merely a new combination of things that were previously thought to be of a different kind.
For example, Steve Jobs combined the cell phone and the personal computer to create the iPhone, and Einstein discovered the Theory of Relativity by integrating "light, electromagnetic waves, space and speed".
Poincaré, the great French mathematician, said that "idea-discovery is the discovery of a law that is common to things that were previously thought to be of different kinds, and the unification of these two things under that law".
Poincaré merged "geometry" and "algebra", which had been thought to be unrelated, to establish "topology".
Topology is the invention and discovery of the ability to deform figures freely using mathematical expressions while maintaining certain constraints, and has brought about an irreversible progress in the world of mathematics.

Since art is ”the art of place ”and music is” the art of time”, which had been thought to be impossible to integrateI. But I discovered the common law of exact proportionality between the spectrum of sound and light, and established a form of expression called the "The Music Picture".
And I discovered that when tonal music, such as popular music, is transformed into a painting using these rules, the image of a figurative landscape or figure that is the subject of the music always appears.
Finally, I have made possible the inter-translation of the three fields of art: tonal music, consisting of lyric and song, and painting.
This combination produces a more powerful expressive effect in the work of art, refining and purifying the content of expression by making the content of the poem and the song perfectly aligned.
This law can be easily applied not only to painting, but also to digital works of art such as team labs, theatrical art, music, animation, and film, allowing for dramatic advances in expressive effects in these areas in the future.

It was impossible to follow them and become, say, a little Miró. ( Painters Painting: The New York Art Scene 1940-1970 Japan edition book 青土社 p65)
※（Note２）「I did not have the confidence to use the phrase "Wagner painted that moment in music in a colorful way", but the fact that art is generally much more powerful than I had imagined, and that painting can develop the same capabilities as music has, has been a fact of life for me.
It became clear to me, however, that art is generally much more powerful than I had imagined, and that painting can develop the same capacity as music does.

※（Note３）Paul Klee, an accomplished violinist, chose a career in art rather than music because "I wanted to pursue musical expression in contemporary art".
Klee said, "We can no longer paint like Michelangelo, partly due to physical causes like muscle and bone, but we can no longer paint like Michelangelo. We are experiencing things more abstractly than we used to. The painting of the future will be like music.
