fine art 

- making, acting and viewing art - 
creates meaning, interaction and connection

Dear Visitors,
From Monday, May 27,
I will park this site until further notice due to other activities, sorry.

Fine Art  
 is a visual art created primarily for beauty and  intellectual purposes and judged for its meaningfulness, 
or to quote Jackson Pollock: "It doesn't matter how the paint is put on, as long as something is said."
¤ This form however, doesn't only in-clude visual paintings, but sculptures, drawing and poetry as examples.  It  includes a type of art form from around the 17th century on. And how to understand it...

Fine art video: How Norman Rockwell Captures the Innocence of Young Love
Over the course of his prolific career, Norman Rockwell developed a remarkable relationship with The Saturday Evening Post, executing 321 cover illustrations for the publication over a forty-seven year period. In this episode of Anatomy of An Artwork, discover the charm of Rockwell’s Little Boy Writing Letter, originally painted for the cover of the January 17, 1920 issue.

Painted during the early period of the artist’s career, Little Boy Writing Letter demonstrates the more expressive and painterly manner of execution that characterizes his works from the 1920s and early 1930s. This distinctive ability to achieve near perfect realism propelled Rockwell’s art to the forefront of the collective American consciousness, and ultimately became integral to the country’s vision of itself, its history and its values. Explore this lot and more in Sotheby’s American Art Sale. (21 May | New York)

Video: What About Fine Art?

...And how to understand it, is about the creation of visual arts which involves painting, sculpting and drawing. Today, thanks to museums and collectors, there are over one thousand drawings by Rembrandt which have been preserved. So remember to visit museums and exhibitionsFor this to be seen as  fine art it needs to qualify; so it needs to be graphics, a painting, for example oil on canvas, or acrylic painting on canvas

Painting is however more popular as opposed to drawing, with the former having developed in leaps and bounds over the centuries. The most important point is that it is a form of visual art that is the most obvious. Therefore, we cannot escape the burning issue: Why is fine arts so important? Seneca Academy let us know several reasons; "Here is what we've learned through experience about why arts integration is so important: Working in the arts helps learners to develop creative problem-solving skills. ... Art instruction helps children with the development of motor skills, language skills, social skills, decision-making, risk-taking, and inventiveness." (Seneca Academy, 2019).

"PAFA’s Historic Landmark Building (HLB) is considered one of the finest surviving examples of Victorian Gothic architecture in America. It provides the museum with a magnificent setting for its permanent collectionspecial exhibitions, and events. As the modernist architect Louis I. Kahn observed, it is a life-giving and inspired building.
On April 22, 1876, while America celebrated its centennial, PAFA marked an important milestone in its then 71-year history with the opening of its new building. While the museums in New York City and Boston (both founded in 1870) were but fledglings, PAFA began its eighth decade in a striking and revolutionary new home." (PAFA. org., 2019).

Some Principles and | or Elements of Art 
Fine art, as I mentioned earlier, is and was developed primarily for aesthetics, beauty and practical utility. However, in some educational institutions and art museums, it is associated exclusively with the visual arts. In this sense, the word ‘art’ is also often a synonym for this art form.

The arts are a social phenomenon, a means of communication, a human need to express themselves and communicate through shapes, colors, sounds and movements, art is a product or creative act. The ancient Greeks divided the arts into different aspects, the first being those works that communicate with higher senses (vision and hearing), in the absence of physical contact with the observed object.

From the seventeenth century (classical period) the French culture comprised of four arts disciplines taught at the Ecole des Beaux, namely dance, drama, music and visual art. Depending on the country and its history, the concept of this art form varies with its content, and the recognition of new disciplines, such as photography.

According Ricciotto Canudo, cinema art was introduced under the term seventh art in 1914. This art form is also a university degree in some countries, such as Argentina, Chile, Spain and Mexico. In Spain, this degree encompasses conservation and restoration of works of art, design, photography, painting, drawing, engraving, among others.

The term has been used to designate a limited number of artistic disciplines and is still used by schools, colleges and other organizations to indicate a traditional perspective in the art world. This often entails implying an association with classic art or academic art. Besides the beauty, the arts can also entail expressiveness, originality, even ugliness or death itself.

For example, the paintings of Jean Dubuffet and Jean Fautrier associated with the writer Albert Camus and Jean Paul Sartre the philosopher. The term has become obsolete, especially after the advent of the avant-garde of the twentieth century. In Hispanic cultures, this influenced the gains made by visual arts. The controversy over what is art begins with Plato and Aristotle.

Disciplines that are used to make objects that can be useful such as carpentry, pottery, were also ranked according to this approach in the servile arts.

There are different definitions of music: art that combines the sounds according to the principles of melody, harmony and rhythm.

Painting - visual art using pigments mixed with other binders, organic or synthetic substances. It is applied in a certain technique to obtain a composition of shapes, colors, textures, drawing, resulting in a work of art according to aesthetic principles.

Fine Art Video: César Aira Interview: Literature is the Queen of the Arts
“Literature is the queen of the arts – the greatest of them all, because it embraces them all. When you write, you are making music, painting, drawing, cinema.” Meet the unique, secretive César Aira in this rare interview. "You will have to travel to the south of Argentina to find the most original, the most shocking, the most exciting and subversive Spanish-speaking author of our time" (Spanish newspaper El País) wrote of César Aira."

Literature - beautiful art whose instruments are words, set in literary compositions of a people, period or genre. Body of work on some art or science. Cinematography - art that has projections of images displayed as movies. One of its qualities is that it contains art images, forms and other relevant features.

Creative Aging Engages Seniors through Art
Creative Aging in the Libraries
“The Creative Aging program is filling a need in the community, and ties well into other library resources offered to older adult learners. This robust package continues to build momentum and has become a key resource for seniors—that’s very exciting.” (—Terry Kirchner, Westchester Library System Executive Director, 2019).

From the mid-eighteenth century, the Spanish crown was influenced by European policies promoting arts in academies, schools and studios. This bore fruit in three existing institutions: the Catalan Royal Academy of Fine Arts, the School of Applied Arts and Crafts (Market) and the Faculty of Fine Arts. The same Board of Trade creates more technical studies with the passage of time and other group initiatives elsewhere in the Catalan countryside.

Fine Art | The Deep Meaning
The Emotion Behind it
There is no denying the fact that fine art is broad. We say this because fine art involves music, dance, theater and various fields of designing. Fine art is generally used for aesthetic purposes. 

Mind you, they use the word “fine,” but that is not referring to the quality. Instead, the word “fine” is referring to the purity of the discipline.
Think of fine art as the doorway to the world of your emotions, soul, expressions, impressions, intellect and most of all, your heart. If you are an individual who has love for fine art, then this is going to come in handy as we are going to give you a great deal of information on fine art, Your path to the heart and soul. Art is about to learn about how you can learn about yourself.

Art is Good for People of All Ages
Art, regardless of your age, is good for you. Art will invite you as a human to strive forth and grow. Take a toddler and let them do art with you – art can help toddlers build their motor skills.
As an adult, when you view arts, you are relaxing your mind. Have you ever wondered why those who are more in touch with their “artsy” -side tend to be happier in life? Because they use art to escape from time to time, but also to learn from.

Expose Your Child to Art
It is interesting to note that for children, the various disciplines of art are of great use. They help to develop skills in learning and with their relationships with others.

Video: Types of Painting - an intro for kids of all ages | Sanger Academy
A simple illustrated list of the main types, or genres, of Western painting, including portraits, history paintings, religious paintings, mythological paintings, landscapes, genre paintings, still lifes, and abstract paintings. Familiar examples, all non-nude." (Sanger Academy Charter School, 2019).

Communication becomes easier for a child who has been exposed to art. When they carefully observe, their analytical skills develop. Then, they are better able to express their emotions and what is on their minds.
Take photography, for example. It takes a lot of patience to practice it and a lot of practice is also necessary. A photographer will be defined by the area in which they find fulfillment when they take their pictures. A person learning the method needs to know how to go about taking a picture in the first place.

For this, they can do research through books or the Internet to see another people’s work. Then, they’ll be exposed to the different kinds of equipment used. In this kind of art, the quality is shown from how the picture is composed to when it is produced.
Designing fine art is essential in expressing one’s decorative side in the home, office or church. Things like glass, wood, ceramic and even metal can be used to produce sculptures, create effect on glass windows, do pottery work and to make furniture.
For interior design it’s important to have a creative mind that is open to trying new ideas and concepts.

Will there be fewer fine artists in the future? | Royal Academy of Arts UK
"We put the question to Jennifer Zielinska, part of the RA’s attRAct programme, and Royal Academician and fine artist Cornelia Parker

The A-level students the RA works with are turning away from careers in fine art, says Jennifer Zielinska
During the past four years that I have been working with attRAct, the RA’s programme for A-level students, I have seen more and more students leaving school with a desire to study creative subjects. Yet very few of them see their future as fine artists.
The profile that art has held in secondary schools has been gradually weakening since 2006, when as an A-level student in a London grammar school, I participated in the attRAct programme. The English Baccalaureate, introduced in 2010 as a performance measure in secondary schools, does not include Art and Design as a core subject that contributes towards the measure. By omitting art subjects from this measure, artistically minded students are marginalised – discouraged from seeing art as a viable line of work – and schools are under less pressure to prioritise them." (Royal Academy UK, 2019).

The Colorful Truth
Color affects people. It also provides a sense of fulfillment. For this reason it’s important to see what color brings out of someone. Also, a great way of self-expression is how a person chooses to design and decorate their home or office.

Graphic Design | Fine Art
Did you know that graphic design is a form of fine art? Graphic design can help individuals develop their creativity. Graphics are done by using a computer with programs that require expertise. For graphic work, drawing is essential because it helps in creating attention to detail. A great career can be achieved with dedication to proper studies on graphic design and a creative mind.

The Psychology of Arts
The psychology of art studies the characteristics, cognition and perception of art and its production. Theodor Lipps, a research psychologist, had a lot to do with the early development of art psychology in the early twentieth century.  Lipps biggest contribution involved trying to theorize the question of empathy. Later in art psychology theories, “empathy” one a very important element.

Heinrich Wolffin is another name you may hear if you are studying art. He was not only a Swiss art critic, but also a historian. He tried to show that humans can understand architecture from a psychological point of view, instead of a historical point of view. Many artists, such as Paul Klee and Naum Gabo were influenced by Wolffin’s way of thinking.

Video: Ellen Winner, Professor | The Psychology of the Arts
"Ellen Winner's research focuses on two broad issues in the area of cognition in the arts: (1) the impact of arts education on the development of thinking dispositions or habits of mind such as reflection, exploration, and observation; and
(2) experimental aesthetics—examining how we reason about philosophical questions about the arts, questions such as why we dislike perfect fakes and how we judge skill in abstract art. This research is based on a view of the arts as cognitive as well as affective, and on the assumption that the arts are a central aspect of human behavior which must be incorporated into our understanding of development, cognition, and education." (Boston College, Morrissey College of Arts and Science, 2019).

Where did Art Psychology First Start?
Art psychology first started in Germany. Throughout the fifties, art psychology started to show up in museum programs. Today, times have changed – art psychology can be found all over the world from the United States to China and beyond.

Each Piece of Art is Unique in its Own Way
With art, one views and composes artwork as unique ways that reflect the individuals emotions, preferences, experience and knowledge. The experiences has a lot to do with the emotional attachment between the art object and the viewer. The artist will need to be in tune with the object they are creating. As the artwork progresses, so does the artist. Both change and grow and both develop a new meaning in life.

When an artist makes discoveries in the psychology of art, they can take those discoveries and apply them to another field of study. One can obtain information about the inspiration, motivation and work ethics. That knowledge can then be transformed into other areas of the individual’s life.

Psychology of Art and Criticism
The psychology of art can be criticized for many reasons. Art is not a science. The research can be scrutinized for relativity and accuracy. There is also a lot of criticism about art research as psychology because it’s subjective, not objective.
The audience interprets the work in multiple ways. The goals of an artist are very different from the goals of a scientist. The former means to give many interpretations of an object while the latter proposes one outcome to a problem.

Why Do We Have Art | Why Do Humans Make Art?
What is art for? There are many reasons why humans want to make art and why it should be considered a wellness practice. Art makes life special. This relates to our need to decorate, embellish and personalize.

Visual arts could mean a variety of things, such as creating a pleasing design on something that we use every day or wanting to create something that is personally appealing in someone’s life.

Do you realize that human survival is linked to the arts? This is a true statement, even though many people do not realize it. Groups that make things special have more unifying ceremonies and interactions. In early history, humans who labeled themselves “artists” were more capable of surviving that those who did not like art.

Video: Why do humans make art? - an exhibition at MONA
"On the Origin of Art at MONA: seeking the source of the creative impulse. In 1997, scientist Steven Pinker described music as "auditory cheesecake". His one-liner has been repeated many times since, with variations. It's a simple extrapolation to say that all art is "cheesecake for the mind", or as Pinker puts it: "a brew of megadoses of agreeable stimuli which we concocted for the express purpose of pressing our pleasure buttons". (The Sidney Morning Herald, 2017).

Art Engages the Senses
Did you know that art engages the human senses? Arts could have developed when the humans could feel good. It is very likely that humans used art to make things “Special.” Humans enjoy patterns, colors, order, novelty, body movement and play. Most people take part in the world of art simply because it makes them feel better.
Since the beginning of time, art has been a part of us humans. They use arts in sacred rituals, such as Native American Totems and Tibetan sand paintings. They also used art in non-sacred rituals.

Art Enhances the Community
Humans also use art because it enhances the community. Art gives a community a personalized experience that people know and love.

Art Tells Stories
Art can tell stories or present ideas. It can be realistic or abstract. For some people, though, the most important thing in art is that it expresses, or it stirs emotions. An artist can record through his or her artwork what they are feeling and at the same time, bring about emotional reactions in the viewer. This is what Expressionist Art is all about. There are expressionistic features in various styles and movements.

Video: How Can the Arts Contribute to Community Development?

Artists make choices about texture, line, color, and composition so that they can evoke or express feelings. In the nineteen fifties a group of American artists that people called Abstract Expressionists believed that the best way to express pure emotion was to create completely abstract art in which the shapes, the textures, the lines, and the colors expressed their emotional state.

A work of art may never come to the attention of anyone other than the artist, yet, it remains art.  A person’s psychological constitution determines that what they feel when examining art is what the artist intended. What is a work of art? Art in its generic sense means “skill.”
For reasons of organization, when expanding awareness, it may be necessary to separate each variable in order to become aware of them one at a time. Thus, some viewers may want to separate their emotions from their reading of the work, although this could lead to a false sense of separation.

A common response in viewing art is the sense that a space in a work has meaning because it means something to the artist and the viewer, who takes time to look at it and respond to it.

This response is never without emotion, which is susceptible to change, resulting from the influence of stimuli to the mind, body and spirit. In fact, they are even the cause of meaning in many works of art. Meaning is a complex interplay between the heart and soul, and the mind and body.
It’s impossible to tell which part of a person the art speaks to or which part moves another. Art is a holistic experience. The more we know about a work of art and ourselves in relation to it, the more it means.

Objective appreciation eludes us in art. Emotion cannot be separated from experiencing art because it cannot be separate from who we are; our response to art cannot be compartmentalized into categories of awareness.
It is not a failing on the part of the viewer or the artist to feel emotion about art. A separation of emotion from the experience can be devastating at times.

Fine art | OPERA
The Italians who invented the opera were looking to recreate the theatre of the ancient Greeks—dance, music, words, and spectacle in the setting of a communal festival. The fact that song can unlock strong emotions has been key in the ability of this form of art to speak across national and linguistic boundaries.

Over time opera has become associated with European culture. The way it is created and performed are a prime focus of a nation’s cultural identity, but at the same time, one that communicates internationally. Although an opera house belongs to its town and region, it is visible to the world.

Opera is a total art form which joins drama, poetry, singing, plastic arts and sometimes dance. In each work, all the components of opera combine their expressiveness, and this makes a performance an extraordinary show. It monopolizes the hearing, sight, sensibility and imagination of its audience, where all human passions are at work.

The script of an opera can be an original creation, sometimes written by famous poets and novelists, but often it is an adaptation of novels, tales or plays. The subjects developed vary—craving for power, infidelity, forbidden love, revenge, ancient myth, war, or historic events.

With these subjects, opera exists in a world where human passions explode. Often the plot has to do with love, tragedy or death. Many times, the characters are torn between what they feel and duty, face extraordinary situations and are carried away by heightened feelings

This burns them and leaves them to commit acts of violence and sometimes to death. In opera we find courage, enchantment, love at first sight, suicide and murder. The endings find people punished for their crimes, others find redemption or are stricken with remorse, and sometimes there is a happy ending.

Art affects our perceptions and emotions. We are not merely animals because of our ability to perceive and then respond with emotion or reason. We don’t just react to stimuli, but we take information through our senses and process it in different ways.

In this way we change by what we are exposed to—what we see, what we hear, and what we feel. What we see and share on an everyday basis can have a great effect on us, so art can have a radical effect on our emotions and reasoning process. Art in all its forms—music, literature, drama, visual art—enters our perception and the memories become permanent.

In the beginning, our brains were programmed to use this system. As humans, our survival and our abilities to develop and learn all depends on our receptivity to stories and how various ideas are presented. The human brain learns how to speak a new language, follow maps, follow instructions, learn emotions and be more empathetic. Art takes all the above skills to a whole new level. Art can really inspire us and change the way we think.

Do you know what our minds are full of? Memories and personal affinities. Take one piece of art and show it to 100 people. Each mind is going to react differently to that one piece of art. When looking at the art, one individual may feel inspired spiritually, while the next may pick up some negativity from it. It is also possible for another individual to feel indifferent. There is no denying the fact that people are complicated, and our opinions will always vary.

Some artists create to express their perceptions or emotions, while others attempt to change our emotions. Rivera created heroic murals in order to inspire people to see their life as important and to inspire each individual to fight for the justice of all people.
As we see fine art is something that feeds our souls. It inspires us. It allows to think critically. And more importantly, it has a powerful effect on cognition and mind/body. Fine art is for everyone!

Oil on canvas
Oil painting | Description, History, & Facts
"Oil paintingpainting in oil colors, a medium consisting of pigments suspended in drying oils. The outstanding facility with which fusion of tones or colour is achieved makes it unique among fluid painting mediums; at the same time, satisfactory linear treatment and crisp effects are easily obtained. Opaque, transparent, and translucent painting all lie within its range, and it is unsurpassed for textural variation.

Artists’ oil colors are made by mixing dry powder pigments with selected refined linseed oil to a stiff paste consistency and grinding it by strong friction in steel roller mills. The consistency of the colour is important. The standard is a smooth, buttery paste, not stringy or long or tacky. When a more flowing or mobile quality is required by the artist, a liquid painting medium such as pure gum turpentine must be mixed with it. In order to accelerate drying, a siccative, or liquid drier, is sometimes used. (Encyclopaedia Britannica, 2019).

Acrylic on Canvas
Acrylic painting
"Acrylic paintingpainting executed in the medium of synthetic acrylic resins. Acrylics dry rapidly, serve as a vehicle for any kind of pigment, and are capable of giving both the transparent brilliance of watercolour and the density of oil paint. They are considered to be less affected by heat and other destructive forces than is oil paint.
They found favour among artists who were concerned about the health risks posed by the handling of oil paints and the inhalation of fumes associated with them. Because of all these desirable characteristics, acrylic paints became immediately popular with artists when they were first commercially promoted in the 1960s. Notable 20th-century artists who used acrylic paint include 
Pop artists Andy Warhol and Roy LichtensteinOp artist Bridget Rileycolour field artists Mark RothkoEllsworth Kelly, and Barnett Newman, and British artist David Hockney.(Encyclopaedia Britannica, 2019).

Definition of fine art
"In European academic traditions, fine art is art developed primarily for aesthetics or beauty, distinguishing it from applied art, which also has to serve some practical function, such as pottery or most metalwork.

Historically, the five main fine arts were paintingsculpturearchitecturemusic, and poetry, with performing arts including theatre and dance. The old master print and drawing were included as related forms to painting, just as prose forms of literature were to poetry. Today, the range of what would be considered fine arts (in so far as the term remains in use) commonly includes additional modern forms, such as filmphotographyvideo production/editingdesign, and conceptual art." (Wikipedia, fine art, 2019).

The Fine Art Society
"The Fine Art Society are art dealers based in London and Edinburgh. Established in 1876, the gallery is one of the oldest fine art dealers in the UK, and has historic links to many of the most influential British artists of the 19th and 20th centuries. Currently based in Michelin House, South Kensignton, the London branch of the company, specializes in British art from 1900 onwards, providing valuations and private treaty sales to collectors from around the world. Similarly our Dundas Street branch in Edinburgh's New Town, specializes in Scottish art from 1700 onwards." (The Fine Art Society, 2019).

Arts and Society
"ARTS AND SOCIETY is a global movement of artists and of projects that aims to gather creative and artistic projects from around the world, using the Arts, culture and creativity to impact society in all issues or matters of life.
Arts, Cultures and Creativity are fundamental tools in education, in learning, in improvement and in innovation, in resistances and in the fight against ignorance, collaborating with scientists, educators, scholars, and ecologists towards a global change." (Arts and Society; CO-Founders; ICPHS, UNESCO, GCAC, MÉMOIRE DE L'AVENIR, 2019).

Mosaic as Fine Art
Mosaic, are made from small pieces of glass and stone called Tesserae. It is also a very common form of fine art and very well celebrated. The artist who performs this kind of art is called a mosaicist. The most famous mosaic is that of Christ Pantocrator found in the Hagia Sophia in Rome. 'Mosaic Art Now', 2019, are talking about Post-, Neo-, and Non-Mosaic and ask a couple of relevant questions. Let us take a look at Mosaic Art Now.

The art of sculpture
is forming a three-dimensional form of art that is tangible. Most sculptures were larger than life, but also small ones are found in some periods of art. Conceptual art, architecture, theater and dance are also considered to be part of fine art. The definition of the word fine art is therefore varied, and it depends on the intended purpose
Lucy Bleach, Head of Studio (Sculpture) let us know; "Contemporary Sculpture is a truly inter-disciplinary practice. Artists explore an incredibly diverse range of materials, processes and approaches to realise exciting and powerful modes of practice." (School of creative arts, University of Tasmania, Australia).

The Relation Between Music and Painting
"The environment we experience influences our creative process. When we experience variations in lighting, colors on the walls, different smells, and different types of sounds, they evoke different feelings within us and in turn these sensory experiences invade our creative process. The sensory effects of music affects our painting process; I distinctly see how music plays out in my art and in the art of my students." Meghan Norton, online education manager of (Artists Network, 2019). 

Video: MUSIC PAINTING - Glocal Sound - Matteo Negrin

This leads us to the obvious connection between painting and other categories and genres within the art field. For example; "In the 60s artists and musicians teamed up with dancers and theater people to create happenings. John Cage, Robert Rauschenberg, Merce Cunningham and many others combined art-making and music making (in the case of Cage, no music! ) A fascinating time to look at how these collaborations set the stage for post modern art." (Incredible art, 2019). Making art, make meaning and connection - incredible arts.

The Arts Society
"We believe that the arts have the potential to enrich peoples’ lives. That is why we create opportunities to discover and support the arts of yesterday, today and tomorrow, wherever you are. Our grants support the development of skills in the arts and heritage." (The Arts Society, 2019). 

Art in International Relations
"Art can leave an impact on international politics by offering inspiration and perspective to relations between peoples of different nations and life experiences. It can furthermore “re-enchant” the world as humanity faces many critical challenges, such as threats to peace and security; widespread and massive violations of political, civil, social, and cultural rights; and the deterioration of the biosphere.
The most direct and easily perceptible contribution of art to international relations is of an instrumental nature, where art is deliberately used to obtain certain objectives such as awakening a sense of patriotism, or stirring people’s emotions to take action against a perceived problem. Art also has an extrinsic value in international relations, where the knowledge, ideas, inspirations, and sympathies of international political relevance that can be derived from a work of art by the discerning reader, listener, or observer." (Oxford Research, International Studies, 2019).

How can the Role of Arts and Culture reach International Relations and Diplomacy
"It is a great pleasure to be with you here today. As the head of the European Union National Institutes for Culture (EUNIC) in New York, I am delighted to welcome you all to our 41st official EUNIC Forum.
I want to thank the EU Delegation to the United Nations for hosting us and making this event possible.
I hope you’ll agree with me that the Delegation in New York is a fitting venue to gather and explore the unique role art and culture plays in international relations and diplomacy, as a form of exchange to build trust, increase familiarity, and create positive perceptions between peoples and nations." (, 2019)

"Institute for Cultural Diplomacy inc. (USA)
Founded in 1999 in the USA, the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy inc (ICD) is an international, not-for-profit, non-governmental organization with headquarters in the USA and in Berlin (since 2003).

The ICD understands that in an increasingly globalized world, in which people are able to travel and exchange information faster than ever before, the globe is becoming more integrated and there is a growing interdependency between nations, communities and individuals.
As a result, successful  intercultural interaction will undoubtedly become a major challenge for international relations in the 21st century.
In this regard, the ICD believes that inter- and intra-cultural relations can be strengthened and maintained through constant and on-going dialogue and exchange. These, in turn, lead to a better understanding and greater trust between nations and communities, prevent misunderstanding, improve communication and cooperation and help to reduce the likelihood of socio-cultural conflicts and disputes." (Cultural, 2019)

Fine art and the evolution
In this fine art area of art-categories and genres, at first we find fine art and the evolution ahead to contemporary art as well as from art history and its wonders, which dates way back around 10,000 – 1,000 B.C. as evidenced by sculptures, cave and rock paintings of our long gone ancestors. It would normally depict animals and human-like forms or outline of the primitive man equipped with arrows and spears, at a time when hunting was considered the primary source of food and essential for survival. Art has progressed from this primitive period and it would not take long before more sophisticated styles were introduced.

"A couple million years ago, humans discovered fire, and in 1879 Thomas Edison manufactured a light bulb. Today we take both fire and electricity for granted—but these discoveries were never obvious, and though they were made millions of years apart from one another, they aren't completely independent, either; to get from one to the next, humans made crucial innovations that not only advanced the linear progression of science and technology, but opened our imaginations to what could be possible in the future. Art is no different." (Art Space, 2019).

As we approach the area of fine art and the evolution, we may first have to look more closely at the issue; 'What is art history?' "Art history might seem like a relatively straightforward concept: "art" and "history" are subjects most of us first study in elementary school. In practice, however, the idea of" the history of art "raises complex questions. we mean by art, and what kind of history (or histories) should we explore? Let's consider each term further. (Khan Academy, 2019).

"The world’s largest and most inclusive collection of modern painting and sculpture comprises some 3,600 works dating from the late nineteenth century to the present. It provides a comprehensive selection of the major artists and movements since the 1890s, from Paul Cézanne’s The Bather and Vincent van Gogh’s The Starry Night to masterworks of today." (Painting and Sculpture, MoMa, 2019).

Contemporary art
Throughout history, art has been a form of visual expression, dating back to the eighteenth century. The term art can mean a diverse variety of media, ranging from painting, drawing, sculpture, decorative arts, photography, printmaking, and installation. Although those are the traditional forms of art, art can also be expressed in a variety of other media such as pottery, basketry, enamelwork, glassware, stained glass, interior design, furniture, rug and carpet, floral decoration, lacquerwork, mosaic, tapestry, and metalwork.

Visual arts range from aesthetic purposes to utilitarian purposes and therefore distinguish between the terms artist and artisan. An artisan is one who gives attention to the utilitarian purposes of art. In the mid-1800s, art schools began to open to separate these forms of art from more utilitarian media. This separation continued until the late 20th century.

Things began to change that challenged traditional definitions of art in 1917. Dada artist Marcel Dunchamp submitted a sculpture of a porcelain urinal to a public exhibition in New York City, implying that it was sufficient for an artist to decide something is art and submit it to a public venue, thus challenging art institutions to determine what was and was not considered art. Other experimental forms of art such as conceptual art and minimalism surfaced in the 20th century, and by the turn of the 21st century, more forms of art, such as video art, challenged the traditional definitions of art.

Art exhibition(s)
"The art exhibition has played a crucial part in the market for new art since the 18th and 19th centuries. The Paris Salon, open to the public from 1737, rapidly became the key factor in determining the reputation, and so the price, of the French artists of the day. The Royal Academy in London, beginning in 1769, soon established a similar grip on the market, and in both countries artists put great efforts into making pictures that would be a success, often changing the direction of their style to meet popular or critical taste.

British Institution was added to the London scene in 1805, holding two annual exhibitions, one of new British art for sale, and one of loans from the collections of its aristocratic patrons. These exhibitions received lengthy and detailed reviews in the press, which were the main vehicle for the art criticism of the day. Critics as distinguished as Denis Diderot and John Ruskin held their readers attention by sharply divergent reviews of different works, praising some extravagantly and giving others the most savage put-downs they could think of.

Many of the works were already sold, but success at these exhibitions was a crucial way for an artist to attract more commissions. Among important early one-off loan exhibitions of older paintings were the 
Art Treasures Exhibition, Manchester 1857, and the Exhibition of National Portraits in London, at what is now the Victoria and Albert Museum, held in three stages in 1866-68." (Wikipedia, Art Exhibition, 2019). 

21st century
"4 Essential Rules Of 21st Century Learning - Teach Thought

The term “21st century” has become an integral part of educational thinking and planning for the future. Educators and administrators are actively searching for ways to prepare students for the future, and the educational system has been evolving faster than ever before.

Various studies have shown us that rote memorization is not an effective learning strategy, and that teacher-centered classrooms may not be the most efficiently structured ones for student engagement.

However, despite learning about the skills that students will need to develop to become successful in the 21st century, as well as what beliefs about education may be worth hanging onto or throwing away, schools and teachers are left trying to figure out what their role needs to be in the education of their 21st century students." (Teach Thought, 2019)

Art Objects
These interlocking essays uncover art as an active force in the world – neither elitist or remote, present to those who want it, affecting even those who don’t. Winterson’s own passionate vision of art is presented here, provocatively and personally, in pieces on Modernism, autobiography, style, painting, the future of fiction, in two essays on Virginia Woolf, and more intimately in pieces where she describes her relationship to her work and the books that she loves. ( Jeanette Winterson, 2019).
