Walter Benjamin: Work of Art Summary

Everything in the world has a starting point and this includes Art, which has existed for centuries, the Ancient Egyptians using hieroglyphics as one of the earliest pieces of visual art, the Greeks carved such a thing onto coins, bronze and terracotta.

Art doesn’t just involve pictures, it evolves into theatre, film and photography to name a few, a camera capturing pictures that are cherished memories and record movies that leave a legacy on viewing audiences. Historical places like Chapels, have their own style of art, stain glassed windows depicting characters from the bible being a prime factor. Such a simple thing created before most people were born is talked about through generations. Art has expanded its influence so much that it now is prevalent out in the public.
