To evoke in oneself a feeling one has experienced, and having evoked in oneself, then by means of movement, line, color, sounds or forms express in words, so to transmit that feeling that others experience the same feeling–this is the activity of art.

Art is a human activity consisting in this, that one man consciously, by means of certain external signs, hands on to others feelings he has lived through and that others are infected by these feelings and also experience them.

Leo Tolstoy
