Scope note
Works of fine or decorative art, typically in the context of collectables and of relatively small size, rather than museum objects or large in size. In English, use of the French term "objets d'art" emphasizes this meaning. For fine art, generally prefer the term "works of art" rather than "art objects," although usage overlaps. When referring to the study or practice of the fine arts or the fine and decorative arts together, use "art."
