The National Gallery of Ireland is celebrating Dutch artist Piet Mondrian (1872-1944) and as part of its programming invited jazz singer Emilie Conway to participate in the gallery's Mondrian podcast and in a January ''Talk and Tea'' event taking place online next Tuesday at 11am during which she will be joined by pianist Johnny Taylor and bassist Barry Donohue.

Emilie writing on her blog says: ''What makes Mondrian unique among his peers, except for perhaps Kandinsky, is his connection to music and its impact on his work. This is what particularly interests me as a jazz artist. The major developments in art are paralleled by the major developments in 20th century music through Schoenberg, Satie, Stavinsky, Boulez, to, of particular interest to me and Mondrian, the transformative sound and impact of jazz.''

Costs €5, concessions available. Link: for tickets. Top: Piet Mondrian (1872-1944), Composition of trees 2, 1912-13/ Kunstmuseum Den Haag.
