Record Type: concept
fine art (art genre) (art genres, <genres in the visual arts>, ... Associated Concepts (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Genre including physical objects that are that are meant to be perceived primarily through the sense of sight, are of high quality, requiring refined skill in creation, and typically using the media of painting, drawing, or sculpture. It may also refer to architecture and design. Although there is overlap, fine art is generally distinguished from other art forms based on the media, extent of skill, and the level of formal training required. It is distinct from "decorative art" in that the fine arts are art in which the aesthetic or intellectual expression is more prominent than the utilitarian purpose. It is distinct from "crafts," which are handiworks of media such as ceramics, glass, needlework, or any medium other than painting, drawing, sculpture, or architecture. It is also distinct from "commercial art," which is created to serve commerce such as in advertisements or illustration. Avoid using "fine art" in a broader sense, to include the arts of poetry, music, and filmmaking.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Genre waaronder fysieke objecten vallen die bedoeld zijn om hoofdzakelijk door het oog te worden ervaren, die van hoge kwaliteit zijn en die een grote vaardigheid vergen om te worden gemaakt. Meestal betreft het schilderijen, tekeningen of beeldhouwwerken, maar de term kan ook naar architectuur en design verwijzen. Hoewel er overlap bestaat in het gebruik van de terminologie, wordt beeldende kunst meestal onderscheiden van andere kunstvormen op basis van het medium, de vaardigheid van de kunstenaar en het vereiste opleidingsniveau. Te onderscheiden van 'decoratieve kunst' doordat het bij beeldende kunst om kunst gaat waar de esthetische of intellectuele uitdrukkingskracht belangrijker is dan het gebruiksdoel. Ook te onderscheiden van 'ambachten': handgemaakte artikelen in media zoals keramiek, glas, naaiwerk of een ander medium dat niet schilderen, tekenen, beeldhouwkunst of architectuur is. Ook te onderscheiden van 'commerciële kunst', die wordt gemaakt ten dienste van de handel, zoals in advertenties en illustraties. Gebruik 'beeldende kunst' niet in de bredere betekenis om ook te verwijzen naar de kunstvormen poëzie, muziek en film.
