However , today , when a craft is exercised with the professional work and creativity of isolated individuals , there is talk of craft ; and when a job is well done , they said that was performed according to the concepts of “art”.
For many centuries , the word “art ” merely indicate the so-called fine arts , ie , those that had an aesthetic purpose ( the search for beauty) in the visual and figurative arts . In more recent times we realized that the idea of what is beautiful or what is not can be very different between different people , and even to the same people it can change over time.
