There is no generally accepted and comprehensive definition of Art. It is most often explained as the expression of human creative skill and imagination, usually through paintings, sculpture and architecture. In principle art’s intention is to provide beauty and to inspire the emotions via the artist’s imagination and technical skills. The observer then applies their subjective aesthetic judgement to evaluate the work. But, many artworks are commissioned adding a ‘third-party’ agency.
