Subjectivity of Aesthetics

Vincent van Gough- Sunflowers (Tournesols)

The painting above provides a good example for the subjectiveness of aesthetics. The beauty of this painting has been debated during one of our class discussions. Some people thought that being able to see this piece of art in person would be breathtaking whereas others thought that this was an ugly painting and did not understand what people see in it. Personally, I do not find this painting very aesthetically pleasing but someone else may appreciate this art piece and find it to be the best painting they has ever been created.
