Fine Arts

Fine ArtsAlso known as the “High Arts” or “Major Arts” traditionally painting, sculpture, drawing, and engraving are classified as Fine Arts. The term usually denotes a piece made expressly for its beauty and lacking any functional purpose aside from being admired. The Paris Salons and traditional schools of art distinguished Fine Arts from Decorative Arts, a distinction that Art Nouveau resisted.
