One of the things I don't understand is the line that separates art from non-art. Some works are not automatically classified as art because they are elaborately made, and some are classified as art even if they appear to be poorly made. Some works, such as Marcel Duchamp's "Fountain," are also classified as art even though they were not created by the artist. Even if you read books, it may not be clearly written.
I think one of the clues to explore the invisible border is who owns the work and where it is exhibited. For example, if a work is owned by a museum, it is probably because many people in the world consider it to be art, and even if it is not owned by a museum, if it is exhibited in a museum or art gallery, it must be art. Applying this idea to Hisashi Eguchi's illustrations, I can say that they are art because the Chiba Prefectural Museum of Art, which I visited on the day of the exhibition, is holding an exhibition of them.
However, this idea is only analogous to the actions of others, and in truth I am unable to decide for myself whether it is art or not. Perhaps God has not given me the role of discovering new art. But from the point of view of a mere observer, it doesn't matter whether it is art or not.
