    art

    Hello everyone,

    I'm a little confused with the word "art" in the following sentence, what does it mean there?

    Our home had no running water or electricity, no furniture, no wall­paper, no art, no yard with owersójust bare ground and alfalfa.

    Hi KLPNO,
    In your sentence art means beautiful objects: beautiful or thought-provoking works produced through creative activity. Hope this helps.
