Can artistic creation influence the minds and lives of people?

Today, a person can no longer imagine life without a novel he has read, without a new movie, without a theater premiere, without a fashion hit and a favorite musical group, without art exhibitions. In art, a person finds new knowledge, and answers to vital questions, and relief from the daily hustle and bustle, and pleasure. Art can tell about a distant historical era, about people, a completely different way and style of life, but the feelings that people have been imbued with at all times are understandable to the current reader.
Art has many faces, and often one of its types is closely related to another: for example, in many works of literature we can learn about the great power of music, and about painting, sculpture, ennobling, giving strength to a person. This is what I will try to show in my work. The role of true art in human life is the problem on which the Russian writer V.V. Veresaev discusses in many of his works. At all times, this moral and ethical issue has been topical. Zlobodnevny because “art, according to FM Dostoevsky, never left a person, always met his needs and his ideal, always helped him in finding this ideal.”
It is impossible to imagine our life without art and creativity. Wherever and whenever a person lived, even at the dawn of his development, he tried to comprehend the world around him, which means he tried to understand and figuratively, intelligibly convey the knowledge gained to the next generations. And this was born not only by the desire to protect their descendants from the mistakes already passed by the ancestors, but also by the desire to convey the beauty and harmony of the world, admiration for the perfect creations of nature. Art helps a person to look at the world from different points of view. With each epoch, with each century, it is more and more improved by man. At all times, art has helped people develop their abilities, improve abstract thinking.

Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
