Pure art is often used in an elitist sense,
judging impure what the critic do not like.
Being strict, either all art is pure or all
art is impure.

If you sell it, it' commercial art. In this
sense, a Jasper Johns painting is as commercial
as an advertising illustration. You would have 
to include the concept of intent to establish
a difference.

Again, which art is not composite, meaning not 
contaminated by other art forms?
