Pure art is an art form whose manufacture prioritizes aesthetic values??over functional values. Fine art is more a work of art with the basis of drawing and designing such as paintings, graphic arts, and sculpture.

Pure art itself has developed from year to year. The following is a more complete explanation of the understanding of the history of pure art, its development, function, type, and examples.
