Film came to be established as an art because masterpieces, such as the highly theatrical work of Chaplin , were produced in that medium . It is not the possi bili ty of purity or the efficient production of a unique effect that wins a medium a place among the arts , but the creation of interest ing , though often "impure , " works . The medium specificity theorist may also rely on the division of labor notion as a defensive gambi t .

Jean B aptiste Dubos , James Harris , Moses Me ndelsohn , and most famously, Gotthold Ephraim Lessing revolted against the kind of art theory proposed in Charles B atteux's tract entitled The Fine A rts Reduced to the Same Principle. 5 As B atteux's title should suggest , pre-Enlightenment art theorizing tended to treat all arts as the same e . g . , as striving for the same effect , such as the imitation of the beautiful in nature . Enlight enment proponents such as Lessing , pos sessed by the epoch's zeal for distinctions , sought to differentiate the arts in terms of their medium-specific ingredients .
