The '''History of art''' is the history of any activity or product made by humans in a visual form for [[aesthetics|aesthetical]] or communicative purposes, expressing ideas, emotions or, in general, a [[worldview]]. Over time [[visual art]] [[art#Forms, genres, media and styles|has been classified in diverse ways]], from the medieval distinction between [[liberal arts]] and [[Artes Mechanicae|mechanical arts]], to the modern distinction between [[fine art]]s and [[applied arts]], or to the many contemporary definitions, which define art as a manifestation of human creativity. The subsequent expansion of the list of ''principal arts'' in the 20th century reached to nine: [[architecture]], [[dance]], [[sculpture]], [[music]], [[painting]], [[poetry]] (described broadly as a form of [[literature]] with aesthetic purpose or function, which also includes the distinct genres of [[theatre]] and [[narrative]]), [[film]], [[photography]] and [[comics]]. At the conceptual overlap of terms between [[plastic arts]] and [[visual arts]] were added [[design]] and [[graphic arts]]. In addition to the old forms of artistic expression such as [[fashion]] and [[gastronomy]], new modes of expression are being considered as ''arts'' such as [[video]], [[Digital art|computer art]], [[Performance art|performance]], [[advertising]], [[animation]], [[television]] and [[videogames]].
