Fine Art paintings are primarily created and valued for aesthetic and intellectual purposes rather than their functional value and utility.
Fine Art as opposed to popular art and entertainment required fine taste as originally conceived and understood in the modern era. However in the postmodern period , fine taste or good taste is quite controversial. Besides, with the extension in the area of fine art as a result of technology and artistic invention, it is becoming increasingly difficult to define or fix a meaning for fine Art.
We believe paintings which are beautiful, pleasing to the eyes ,have depth in their composition and are created for the same purpose qualify as Fine Art Paintings.
