范文示例：Describe a statue or work of art
1.What types of art do people in your country like? 哪类艺术在你的国家受欢迎?
Well, I think it depends on people and their preferences. Some compatriots of mine adore Fine or Visual Arts, I mean drawings, paintings, sculptures, printmakinq and photography despite the fact they have no functional purpose except to be admired and contemplated as aesthetic objects. Others give their preference to Decorative Arts such as woodworkinq, ceramics, pottery or weavings 'cause they are visual and aesthetically pleasing as well as serve a useful function such as furniture, tableware, textiles and so on. What r more, they enhance the decor of people's homes, which is highly appreciated by many of my fellow citizens. All people are different that’s why types of art that appeal to the also different but the effect art has on them is very similar - the moment they indulge deep into the artwork their thoughts and emotions change helping them distress and forget about their worries, which makes both Visual and Decorative Arts attractive and valued.
2.Would you say art is important? 你认为艺术重要吗?
Of course, I would. Art is an essential ingredient to empowering the hearts of people as it reminds them that there is beauty in the world and they can strive to see and appreciate it. It is also a remarkable mode of depicting culture from all over the world as art says things words just can't say. I can also add that art makes our imagination work, encourages creative thinking and lets people come up with their own unique solutions. It boosts people's ability to analyze and problem-solve in myriad ways, allowing for multiple interpretations and helping to invent new ways of thinking. So, it's definitely important both for children and adults.
3.What kinds of art are the most valuable in terms of monetary value? 那种艺术最值钱?
Well, paintings and sculptures as far as I know as some of them cost hundreds of millions of dollars. I guess it is so because, first of all, a big number of famous paintings and sculptures are held in important public collections and are unlikely to be deaccessioned. At the same time there are scarce works held by private collectors, which immediately increases the price of those artwork' they are ready to sell. And second because fashion and a great status artist play a role, making their sculptures and paintings wanted and hugely expensive.
4.Why do some paintings have higher value than others? 为什么有些画比其他作品更有价值?
Oh, I would say because the artists who painted them are either fashionable or eternal and very important in art history. I can also predict that it is so because the paintings themselves are highly recognizable, have got the impact that makes people want to own them or have a better provenance than those which have a lower value. By provenance I mean whose collection they've been in, where they've been exhibited or which dealers have handled them. That's it.
