The Arts?

There seems to be a bit of confusion/debate over the order but it derives from Hegel's 'Lectures on Aesthetics'. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lectures_on_Aesthetics


Here he describes 5 art forms: architecture, sculpture, painting, music and poetry.


These were expanded upon by Ricciotto Canudo in 1911 in a publication called ' The Birth of the 6th Art' relating to cinema. He later added dance as a precursor, thereby making cinema number seven. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ricciotto_Canudo


How architecture sometimes gets swapped to number three I'm not too sure...
