Art manifests itself in different ways through human oeuvres, singularly through music, poetry, sculpture, painting, etc. Each one of these different art forms need the intervention of the human being in order to manifest itself. For example, for music to become manifest it needs a composer to write it, an interpreter to play or a singer who gives it the voice. And so with the other arts. The art of painting needs a painter or an illustrator to make present in the form of a visual representation on the canvas or paper, an objective and existing reality, or, in the case of non-figurative painting of the 20th century, new figures or forms not necessarily subject to objective criteria.
