Abstract

Aesthetics is a complex notion that could be most simply described as 'the religion of beauty', in which art has no purpose but to be exquisite. One of the more significant symbols was the lily – an object of precious loveliness, to be contemplated, but having no useful function. Integral to the aesthetic experience, then, is the notion that art is alienated from normal social life.
