In classical Greece one single word was used to signify craftsmanship and art: Technè. This is a very interesting fact, since it highlights the deep-running link that binds art to craftsmanship.

This concept lasted until after the Renaissance and is testified by the works of a great humanist artist, critic and scholar, Giorgio Vasari. Art started to be considered as a separate field from technique and craftsmanship as late as in the eighteenth century, with the prevalence of Reason during the Enlightenment.
