What Is Art?

By Leo Tolstoy
What Is Art? by Leo Tolstoy digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

The well-known Russian author Leo Tolstoy wrote a book titled "What Is Art?" in which he explores the importance and aim of art. Tolstoy argues that as the ultimate definition of art is the capacity to convey feelings and ideas from one person to another, it is a fundamental component of social interaction and human communication. Tolstoy stresses the necessity of honesty, clarity, and moral principles in art throughout the whole book. He contends that art must be informed by real-world experiences and should aim to convey universal truths about the human condition. In conclusion, "What Is Art?" is a profound and provocative examination of the nature and function of art that has been extensively read and discussed by academics and art fans all over the globe.
