Art and Love is man’s greatest gift.

Art, like any other form of communication, reflects the intention as well as vision or genius of the creator.

Page 3: Masterpieces of mankind

Leonardo Da Vinci

Art elevates the human mind, sublimates his base emotions, and cultivates his sense to be more sensitive to the finer things of life. Art gives peace and vitality to the human mind and soul; and as children are to women of whom they are born, so is art to its creator, the artistic genius. To cultivate ones mind so that art may "speak," is to raise oneself above the level of the animal kingdom; it is to give freedom to man's spirit which is the real joy of life.

Salvador Dalí

What makes something, a piece of good art, as opposed to bad art?

What makes something a piece of printed page, or piece of music art?Ultimate question in the philosophy of art is not only what art is but what its purpose, function, and importance it has are in our lives.

Tolstoys view on art: If a man is infected (is moved by or is very passionate about it) by the author's condition of soul, if he feels this emotion and this union with others, then the object which has effected this is art.Degree of infectiousness is also the sole measure of excellence in art. The stronger the infection, the better is the art as art, speaking now apart from its subject matter, i.e., not considering the quality of the feelings it transmits. And the degree of the infectiousness of art depends on three conditions: 1. Individuality of the feeling transmitted; 2. Clearlesness with which the feeling is transmitted; 3. Sincerity of the artist.

Van Gogh1. Paintings

The power of the greatest art is the power to shake us into revelation and rip us from our default mode of seeing. After an encounter with that force, we don't look at a face, a colour, a sky, a body, in quite the same way again. We get fitted with new sight: in-sight. Visions of beauty or a rush of intense pleasure are part of that process, but so too may be shock, pain, desire, pity, even revulsion. That kind of art seems to have rewired our senses. We apprehend the world differently.

In this painting of the victory of virtue over evil it's supposed to be David who is the centre of attention, but have you ever seen a less jubilant victory? On his sword is inscribed Is humility conquers pride. This is the battle that has been fought out inside Caravaggio's head between the two sides of the painter that are portrayed here.
