Examples of word Art
ATTRIBUTION: HILTON KRAMER, The New York Times art critic, in the late 1960s when the term Â“minimal artÂ” was in vogue.
NATURE, the art whereby God hath made and governs the world, is by the Â‘art, Â’ of man, as in many other things, so in this also imitated, that it can make an artificial animal.
CelliniÂ’s use of the word arte for the art or trade of goldsmiths corresponds to Â“the artÂ” as used by English writers early in this century.
Artistic and literary history is, therefore, _a historical work of art founded upon one or more works of art_.
The only way in which art could disallow such criticism would be to protest its irresponsible infancy, and admit that it was a more or less amiable blatancy in individuals, and not _art_ at all.
