What is esthetics?

Esthetics is something that is difficult to describe. Esthetics is sometimes explained by its component like suitableness and wellness. Generally, measuring the esthetic is subjectively. The measurement depends on the measurer itself. Sometime, one man said that it is beautiful but the other said that is not beautiful. [10]

Fechner found that why people love only something that is beautiful. Fechner concluded that the reason that people like something was because of colors, taste, shape, music, and geometric shape like curve and line. Fechner found that people understood esthetic by it geometric shape. It makes comfortable, interesting and fun. Art psycho-log measured the masterpiece by that way. [3]
In the painting art, the most important thing is combination between line, colors, volume, and all elements which are increasing esthetics feeling. Ducasse said that there are two important elements that are included a thing, those are shape and volume. Shape is being considered into line, color and music that make the viewer happy esthetically.
