A true work of art has great influence on the mind of a man through the senses. And here the great role plays every detail: color, sound, posture of the character, building frame, etc. and so, but everything should be subordinated to a common goal. That is why the great artists has always thought through in detail their works.
Another criterion of a true work of art is its novelty and originality. The author must tell by his article something unexpected, surprising or exciting. That is why when we see real masterpieces of great and well known artist we feel that they motivate us to create something too. Great artists like Vincent Van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinci, Picasso, and Michelangelo have created immortal works of art that are not only breathtakingly beautiful but enhance a sense of aesthetics and inspiration in the viewer as well.
But we can add that in a real work of art should be discarded all the unnecessary, unimportant - everything that could interfere with the perception of its main idea. It should be like a masterfully cut diamond.
A work of Art has the kind of special power because it can tap into and use our reflexive responses to natural, biologically relevant stimuli. We even are unable to control these responses since we do not realize what is happening. Indeed we need no special knowledge or sensory apparatus or experience to respond to a rythm, a tune, a series of bright colors, a monumental building, or a parade. We can all just be thrilled and soothed by a work of art and can’t find the right words for describing that. The process of perception of real art is rather unconscious and a masterpiece always appeals to something transcendental, belonging to all the mankind.
So we can concern the work of art as the deliberate use of some medium to communicate emotions or ideas between minds. The various forms of art such as paintings, music, dance, sculpture or any form are the artists’ exclusive ways of communicating through their creativity and imagination. The criterion of a good work of art lies in its ability to communicate the underlying idea, thought or feeling effectively.
