They may include ceramics, furniture, textiles, glass, leather, metalwork, arms and armor, clocks, and jewelry, and other household or utilitarian objects. They are distinct from "fine arts," which were traditionally considered to require more extensive training and were restricted to the media of painting, sculpture, drawing, and architecture.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Genre met werken die in eerste instantie door hun vorm of functie bedoeld zijn om te worden gebruikt, maar die wel esthetische waarde hebben wat betreft hun ontwerp, decoratie of versiering. Het gaat bijvoorbeeld om keramiek, meubels, textiel, glas, leer, metaalwerk, wapens en wapenrusting, klokken en sieraden en objecten voor in het huishouden of andere gebruiksvoorwerpen. Het genre wordt onderscheiden van 'beeldende kunst', waarvoor van oudsher een uitgebreidere opleiding nodig verondersteld wordt, en dat beperkt is tot schilderen, tekenen, beeldhouwkunst en architectuur.
