Defining Art Questions

Question Description

I’m working on a art discussion question and need a sample draft to help me study.

The conclusion of the digital lecture, The Nature of Art, featured the textbook definition of art but the idea that the definition of art is subjective was also suggested. I ask the class, what is your definition of Art?

You were also presented with three different works of art, Botticelli’s Birth of Venus, Pollock’s Lavender Mist, and Duchamp’s Fountain. Do you consider them all equally to be art? Do you think any of these works are NOT art? If you had to purchase one of the three artworks to hang in your home which would it be and why?
