Attempts to collect arts and the motive behind it
There were many attempts to bring the arts together in one creative work, beginning with the Greek era in which the attempts of artists to collect the arts were uninterrupted, and the Greeks succeeded in creating works of art that combine poetry, singing, dance and music, with a background of paintings and scenes drawn by the great plastic artists. At this time, when cinema appeared, it was able to combine all the arts in an integrated work.
