Beauty of Art
I chose this painting by artist Salvador Dali because of its interesting detail, color and use of the butterfly. I would consider this a beautiful piece of art because to me color is one factor that can depict beauty and Salvador Dali really expresses the color of each butterfly. As well as color, the use of the butterfly as the sails of the war ship gives it a less brutal sense and more of a calm happy feeling which in my opinion is aspects of beauty too.
