Beaux Arts



The Ball by James Tissot, 1879. Oil on canvas 35 x 19 in. Musee D'Orsay, Paris. (This painting is shown as an example for the definition of beaux arts)
(Or fine art) Art that exists primarily to create beauty, as opposed to the decorative or applied arts, which exist primarily for day-to-day use. They include painting, sculpture, some graphic art, and despite its function, architecture. Music and poetry are sometimes called fine arts. (Brockhampton)
