Charles Baudelaire said “…that which is not slightly distorted lacks sensible appeal: from which follows that irregularity-that is to say, the unexpected, surprise and astonishment, are an essential part and characteristic of beauty.”


There is a mystery attached to the beauty of imperfection. Pierre Augustus Renoir believed that beauty of every description finds its charm in variety. He said regularity, order, desire for perfection (which is always a false perfection) destroy art. The only possibility of maintaining taste in art is to impress on artists and the public the importance of irregularity. Irregularity is the basis of any art.
