I went to the National Art Museum today, which is named after and mostly about and full of the works of Čiurlionis. Turns out it was also his 143rd birthday today, so the audio guides for his section were free (as opposed to €4). I'm not super into art museums/galleries, but I was in the mood today, and I've never done with an audioguide before. So that was interesting. I had to take it a lot slower than usual, hearing some (often long and rambling) history and context to the paintings, and also having details pointed out to me that I might not have noticed by myself, I really appreciated the art.

Plus Čiurlionis paints super rad alien fantasy landscapes, so that was cool.
