Alea Roach A05760824 TA Brian Schumaker 3.15.2006 Art for Art’s Sake The concept of Art for Art’s Sake is the idea that art is created and often should be viewed as art, and only art. It is the idea that art should not be obliged to serve one particular function, or group of people; rather, art is valuable purely because it is art, even if it is completely devoid of any ethical, symbolic, or other meaning. Art in the Art for Arts sake movement was meant to be a comment on art within itself, the focus became the actual canvas, rather than the greater meaning or purpose of the painting; it was a comment on and a result of the exhaustion within the art movements because of the constant need for art to comment on the social/political. The idea of Art for Arts sake was a rebellion against the previous notions of art and the ideas of previous art movements that art must serve some moral, didactic, or enhancing purpose, be it to glorify the aristocrats, reveal the plight of the peasants, or rebuke previous art forms.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
