A multi-part essay on Art and what I think about it.
I can't even recall how I stumbled onto this post (well, series of posts), but I enjoyed it (them). Thanks!
Well, thank you for reading it, Jared. I'm glad someone got something out of it!
Bah! I thought I had the ultimate definition of Art (which you graciously have quoted) and I just discovered that US critic and poet Amy Lowell (1874-1925) said basically the same thing in a more graceful way:Art is the desire of a man to express himself, to record the reactions of his personality to the world he lives in.
Is it just the desire, or is it the expression itself? I still like your definition better
