About fine arts
Fine art is creating “Visual art primarily for aesthetic and intellectual purposes and is specifically judged for its beauty, and meaningfulness through, painting, sculpture, drawing, graphics, and architecture.”
In that sense, there are conceptual differences between fine art and applied art. As originally conceived, and understood for much of the modern era, perceived aesthetic qualities required a refined judgment usually called having good taste. The purported good taste differentiated fine art from popular art and entertainment.
Historically, the five main fine art disciplines were painting, sculpture, architecture, music, and poetry. Added to the mix are performing arts and theatre.
Fine art commonly includes more forms, such as film, photography, video production/editing, design, sequential art, conceptual art, and printmaking.
