Fine artFine art is a term used to refer to fields traditionally considered to be artistic. It is also used to describe "high-quality" works from these fields.
"Fine art" differs from "useful art" (craft) in that it is purely aesthetic, whereas crafts are made to serve a practical purpose. Example: a sculpture of a teapot that does not actually work is fine art, whereas one that does work is craft.
