    "What is Art?"

  1. Author: Tolstoy, Leo
    Title: "What is Art?"
    Date: 1898
    Genre: nonfiction
    Note Relating to Cather: "Art is too terribly human to be very 'great' perhaps. Some very great artists have outgrown art, the men were bigger than the game. Tolstoi did, and Leonardo did." In "A Gold Slipper," Kitty Ayrshire says that she has talked with Tolstoy about his essay "What is Art?" Marshall McKann responds that he thinks Tolstoy is "a crank."
