Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
I chose this particular painting called "The Swing" because it's something that I find to be really beautiful. I think beauty completely depends on what your own definition of it is. Beauty comes in all forms and some people find very different things to have beauty. Personally, I'm not sure if I can actually define what I find beautiful but I think as far as things like this painting go, art that has elaborate detail and is really something interesting to look at is usually what I can find beauty in. Most paintings from the rococo era such as this one are very beautiful to me.
