After looking at all of the images that were on the slides I have come up with the conclusion that all of the images are works of art based on my definition. The statue of David is a true art of beauty and shows off the capabilities that people have. The Cave Paintings at Lascaux is a form of art by that it is a painting of animals. It shows off what kind of animals were around at that time period. The Marcel Duchamp Fountain has meaning to it and is on display and showed to anyone that is by. The Notre Dame is a cathedral in Paris and it is a true work of art and beauty. The whole building is gorgeous inside and out. Many appreciate the beauty and details this building has to offer. Robert Crumbs Mr. Natural is a cartoon that’s made to maybe prove a point or stir up conservation. The Pyramids was a huge architecture accomplishment for the time period.
