What is Art?

The definition of art is controversial, although it has existed since prehistoric times (e.g. cave paintings). It is craft in which the purpose is partially or completely esthetic. It can exist for beauty sake alone, or it can have a practical purpose but is nontheless artistic (e.g. beautiful architecture). Art in ancient and medieval times was often used for religious expression. Art is sometimes used to express a political idea. Whatever the purpose, there should be some esthetic element to make a work art.
