Pondering art

16

February

Writer and philosopher Leo Tolstoy pondered the definition of art. Here are some of his thoughts:

  • “Every work of art causes the receiver to enter into a certain kind of relationship, both with him who produced, or is producing, the art, and with all those who, simultaneously, previously or subsequently, receive the same artistic impression.”
     
  • “Art is a human activity consisting in this, that one man consciously, by means of certain external signs, hands on to others feelings he has lived through, and that other people are infected by these feelings and also experience them.”
