The German artist Hans Otto Boehm (known as HOB) explored the relationship between color and sound in his series of paintings titled "Painted Music."

Born in Berlin in 1891, HOB worked on set decoration, graphic arts, and church window design.

He attended the Psychological Research Society, Hamburg, where he became interested in "Color-sound-research."

When he introduced "Painted Music," HOB said, "I paint what I hear."

During Hitler's rise to power, HOB emigrated to Brazil where he taught in Rio de Janiero and São Paulo.

In 1950 he returned to Europe where he continued to paint and exhibit his work until his death in 1980.
