Artologi™ : (n) is our novel word for the study of art. Not necessarily art history, or artology, which really isn't a proper word as well, but simply the study of the diverse range of human activities in creating visual, auditory or performing artifacts (artworks), that express the author's imaginative, creative and technical skill, intended to be appreciated for their beauty or emotional power simply for oneself or others. In their most general form these activities not only include the production of works of art, but their criticism, study of the works. The oldest documented forms of art are visual arts, including painting, sculpture, printmaking, and photography. Architecture is often included as one of the visual arts but like decorative arts and advertising its creation is guided by practical considerations of use and or market appeal -- but this line is a fine as it cannot go without saying that a number of Masterpieces were influence by those initially comissioning the piece. Before the 17th century, art referred to any skill or mastery and was not differentiated from crafts or sciences.
