Art, beauty, theory and piorities

"When the flush of a new-born sun fell first upon Eden's green and gold;
Our father Adam sat under the Tree and scratched with a stick in the mould;
And the first rude sketch that the world had seen was joy to his mighty heart;
Till the devil whispered behind the leaves, 'It's pretty, but is it Art?'  "

Rudyard Kipling  The conundrum of the workshops  (via Alberto Manguel's :Reading pictures)

Which came first - theory or art? Should it matter?
