"WHY" an artist does a particular work of art is just as important as the work itself. The "RELEVANCE" of a work is also just as important. An artist may be trying to "make a statement" with his art which may or may not be particularly "pleasant" to look at. Not to say that a work of art that is made specifically to be beautiful with no real purpose or meaning is of no value, but "IF" there is "relevance" to a beautiful work, it can perhaps be said to be a "greater" work of art. Take Michealangelo's amazing work in the Sistine Chapel for example. Indeed it is a beautiful work of art, but it also displays a "spiritual divinity", or essence is beyond the ability of most other artists to express through painting. It's "relevance" of religious expression in addition to it's beauty is what has made it so memorable in art history!
