• Aesthetic choices are made that impart an impression of high class

Works of art with an elegant/refined aesthetic might incorporate elements such as a limited palette with medium saturation and medium contrast, exquisite control in all lines, marks, and indications of form, and, if the piece is representational, it might depict characters or scenes that are the epitome of style and poise.

An artist might manifest an elegant/refined aesthetic in a piece due to his or her own personality, or the artist might choose this aesthetic as a reflection of the characters/objects/moment in history being portrayed. An elegant/refined aesthetic might also be adopted to make a piece suitable for a setting or purpose that demands something elegant.
