What is art?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, they say. There are several definitions of art, and at times you can find heated discussions around the subject. Somewhere in a text about contemporary art, I read that it is anything that stimulates your thoughts or feelings. That can encompass just about anything in the world.

For my part, I enjoy almost anything where I can see, hear, taste or feel the technical and perceptive talents of the creator. The dexterity of sculptors has always amazed me, probably because I don’t possess the perseverance to work on all the small details. Maybe that was a quality of the old masters as well. They had apprentices working for them on their larger masterpieces and just took the credit for everything.

Judge these bits and pieces and decide what constitutes art, and maybe at what time of day you would appreciate it the most.
