The Nature of Art

What is art?  What are the natures of art?  You cannot translate poetry in the same way you cannot define what is art. In a short, what is created by the people and it has no use value is called art. Art has an exchange value but there is no use value. You can buy a painting but you cannot use it. It is art. You can purchase a table but you can use it. So, it is not art. But when you won’t use it, it will be art. Art has exhibition value but no use value.  The ancients recognized seven qualities as arts:-   1. History   2. Poetry   3. Comedy   4. Tragedy   5. Music   6. Dance and   7. Astronomy  History:  We all know what history is. History is a kind of art form. The researchers find the events that can be true or false. But the researchers as possible find the true history. It is a branch of knowledge. It is also a form of art.  Poetry: The Romans and Greeks recognized three approaches of poetry   1. Lyric   2. Dramatic   3. Epic  By the thirteenth century, history, poetry, comedy and tragedy had merged into literature, philosophy. By the sixteenth century, art was clearly synonymous with skill. By the late seventeenth century, the word ‘art’ was increasingly applied to these activities:-   1. Painting   2. Sculpture   3. Drawing   4. Architecture  These are also called ‘fine arts’. By the late eighteenth century, a differentiation is made between ‘Artist’ and ‘Artisan’. The former is ‘creative’ or ‘imaginative’ and the latter simply a skilled workman. In the nineteenth century, the concept of science is developed and the narrowing concept of art continued. ‘Natural philosophy’ became ‘Natural science’ and the art of alchemy became the science of chemistry. By the middle of the nineteenth century, the word referred first to the visual or ‘Fine arts’ then to literature and the musical arts. It includes performing arts and sense of skills. So, the romantic sense of the artist remained ‘artists’ were distinguished not only from ‘artisans’ (craftspeople) but also from ‘artistes’ (performing artists). In the late nineteenth century, the establishment of the concept of ‘social sciences’ was complete and sciences (economics, sociology, politics, psychology and semiotics philosophy) and physical sciences were left to the domain of art.

What is art?
What are the natures of art?
You cannot translate poetry in the same way you cannot define what is art. In a short, what is created by the people and it has no use value is called art. Art has an exchange value but there is no use value. You can buy a painting but you cannot use it. It is art. You can purchase a table but you can use it. So, it is not art. But when you won’t use it, it will be art. Art has exhibition value but no use value.
The ancients recognized seven qualities as arts:-
 1. History
 2. Poetry
 3. Comedy
 4. Tragedy
 5. Music
 6. Dance and
 7. Astronomy
History:  We all know what history is. History is a kind of art form. The researchers find the events that can be true or false. But the researchers as possible find the true history. It is a branch of knowledge. It is also a form of art.
Poetry: The Romans and Greeks recognized three approaches of poetry
 1. Lyric
 2. Dramatic
 3. Epic
By the thirteenth century, history, poetry, comedy and tragedy had merged into literature, philosophy. By the sixteenth century, art was clearly synonymous with skill. By the late seventeenth century, the word ‘art’ was increasingly applied to these activities:-
