the Muse of Fine Arts Welcomes You

The Muse Of Fine Arts welcomes you to the place at Electricka's web site where you and The Muse explore the Fine Arts.


Beauty, Art, and Fine Art

Convention has much to do with whether an art or art object is classified as beautiful, art, or fine art. And many objects that are classified as art are not considered fine art. So what does it take for an object to be beautiful, art, or fine art?

To answer this question, it's first necessary to define the word beauty:



When is art fine? When is art not so fine?


The Muse Of Fine Arts views many of the debates people have over artistic categorization as hollow, inconclusive, and unproductive labeling. What difference does it make if we refer to a particular art form by one name or another? All art is art, and that which is not art is something else.
