    "I think that art is really disciplined phantasy." - Karen Blixen / Isak Dinesen.

    "We have art so that we shall not be destroyed by the truth." - Friedrich Nietzsche.

    "A work of Art is the unique result of a unique temperament." - Oscar Wilde.

    "The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection." - Michelangelo.

    "Love of beauty is Taste. The creation of beauty is Art." - Ralph Waldo Emerson.

    "There's no retirement for an artist, it's your way of living so there's no end to it." - Henry Moore.

    "I love the gallery, the arena of representation. It's a commercial world, and morality is based generally around economics, and that's taking place in the art gallery." - Jeff Koons.

    ART is the process or product of deliberately arranging elements in a way that appeals to the senses or emotions. It encompasses a diverse range of human activities, creations, and modes of expression, including music, literature, film, sculpture, and paintings. The meaning of art is explored in a branch of philosophy known as aesthetics.

    The definition and evaluation of art has become especially problematic since the early 20th century. Richard Wollheim distinguishes three approaches: the Realist, whereby aesthetic quality is an absolute value independent of any human view; the Objectivist, whereby it is also an absolute value, but is dependent on general human experience; and the Relativist position, whereby it is not an absolute value, but depends on, and varies with, the human experience of different humans. An object may be characterized by the intentions, or lack thereof, of its creator, regardless of its apparent purpose. A cup, which ostensibly can be used as a container, may be considered art if intended solely as an ornament, while a painting may be deemed craft if mass-produced.

    Traditionally, the term art was used to refer to any skill or mastery. This conception changed during the Romantic period, when art came to be seen as "a special faculty of the human mind to be classified with religion and science". Generally, art is made with the intention of stimulating thoughts and emotions.

    The nature of art has been described by Richard Wollheim as "one of the most elusive of the traditional problems of human culture". It has been defined as a vehicle for the expression or communication of emotions and ideas.
