I think we want to say that the naive creator's work is art beginning around t2 (— tl + zoo) but not before. That is to say, Z becomes art zoo years after its intentioned creation, when the history of art, so to speak, catches up with what Z's creator was engaged in. It would be hard to deny at t2 that Z was art; for, after all, it was created and intended for just the sort of treatment that 6's, which are recognized artworks at £ correctly accorded. Z is art at t2 because it was intended for a kind of regard which (unknown to its creator) turns out to be in the stock of standard regards for artworks at t2.
Furthermore, and this also conforms to the reality of art, to the extent that it is unclear which objects prior to t are artworks, it will be equally unclear which objects at t count as art. True, one cannot use the definition to tell, all at once, what has, does, and will count as art at all times, but this is because the applicability of 'art' at any stage is always tied to its concrete, historical realization at that stage. , 'artwork') might mean. The last point suggests another way of expressing the analysis of art that I offer, a way I think that removes any lingering suspicion of circularity.
However, at the expense of some perspicuity but in the name of greater precision and flexibility, I offer a second definition that makes explicit the time-dependence of the status of 'artwork', clarifies the interpretation of 'prior artworks', and indicates more exactly what sort of definition of art I am giving. , regard in any way (or ways) in which artworks existing prior to t are or were correctly (or standardly) regarded. An object can be an artwork at one time and not another. This definition recognizes that an object may not be an artwork from the moment of its physical creation, but may only become an artwork at some later date.
