What is an Artwork

Definition of an Artwork

An artwork is a physical object that may have an aesthetic and/or conceptual value. This could be a painting, a sculpture, a photograph, an installation, a drawing, a collage, etc. Some works fall beyond the scope of traditional art: this is the case of land art, where the work is made directly in the landscape; performance art which involves an artist's actions in front of a live audience; or ready-mades, where artist gives ordinary objects the status of an artwork.

Artworks can be created with a very wide range of techniques, and many artists even combine several techniques and mediums in their works. many artists today tend to combine several techniques and mediums in their artworks. A photograph, for example, may be taken using a film camera, a digital camera, or a Polaroid camera. An artwork is often affiliated with an art movement, a style of art with a specific aim or philosophy followed by artists for a period of time. Claude Monet's paintings are associated with Impressionism, a movement that arose in the second half of the nineteenth century. The history of art is made up of hundreds of art movements. Other examples of significant movements include cubism, surrealism and abstract expressionism.

The evolution of the concept of an artwork

For a long time, it was thought that an artwork had to be a unique piece created or designed by an artist (whether a painter, a sculptor, a photographer, or an draughtsman) which should reflect the artist's technical abilities. Several artistic movements, including readymades and conceptual art, have dispelled this idea. Perhaps, the most iconic example is Marcel Duchamp's artwork Fontaine (Fountain), an industrially made urinal signed R. Mutt.

Similarly, for a long time, an artwork was meant to be a object of a lasting nature. Today, this is no longer the case. The last few decades especially have seen the development of performance art as a form of visual art as well as a growing number of ephemeral artworks and installations.

The legal Term of Art


A quick definition of term of art:

A term of art is a word or phrase that has a specific meaning in a particular field, different from its general meaning. For example, in law, "and his heirs" and "res ipsa loquitur" have specific meanings that are different from their everyday use. Sometimes, a term of art can be a jargonistic word or phrase that is only understood by people in that field.

A more thorough explanation:

A term of art is a word or phrase that has a specific meaning in a particular field or specialty, different from its general meaning in everyday language. It can also refer to jargonistic language used within a particular group or profession.

For example, in law, the phrase "and his heirs" has a specific legal meaning that is different from its everyday meaning. Similarly, "res ipsa loquitur" is a Latin term used in legal contexts to mean "the thing speaks for itself." These terms have precise meanings within the legal profession that may not be immediately clear to someone outside of that field.

Another example of a term of art is "beta testing" in the technology industry. While the word "beta" generally refers to a second version of something, in the tech industry, it specifically refers to a stage of software development where a product is tested by a select group of users before it is released to the public.

Overall, a term of art is a specialized word or phrase that has a specific meaning within a particular field or profession, and may not be immediately understood by those outside of that field.

Many people buy into Community Schemes for the added benefit of a harmonious appearance with little individual effort. Let's explore what the act says.

Sectional Title appearance rules can cause friction with owners of a scheme, however, the first impression from the outside of a scheme, and the overall aesthetic appeal of a property are of utmost importance. The primary capital investment for most people is their home. It is therefore important that the property be maintained such that it can retain (and grow) in value. Many sectional title schemes are made up of apartments, or townhouses. The body corporate should maintain a harmonious external appearance to ensure that the scheme remains a desirable investment for all owners and possible future property purchasers.

The sluggish economy and declining employment over the past few years have prompted an increasing number of people to start their own businesses as a way of earning an income, and the latest available statistics indicate that at least 10% of South Africa’s working adults are now self-employed.

And, of course, most of these small or micro business owners can’t afford to rent an office, shop or manufacturing space, so their enterprises are almost by definition home-based,” says Andrew Schaefer, MD of national property management company, Trafalgar.
