Art: what's in a word?

Something I knew, but hadn't acknowledged, is that in the Dutch language the word fo "art" and "artificial" is the same: kunst. Turns out, the same word can mean "trick". Artifice ("kunstgreep") can literally translate as "grip of art".

Does this mean there is no truth in Art?
