• Aesthetic choices are made that impart an impression of somewhat ordered complexity

Works of art with an ornate/elaborate aesthetic might have intricate yet somewhat ordered patterns or compositions, with a wide range of orchestrated colors, objects, and/or characters.

An artist might manifest an ornate/elaborate 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 ornate/elaborate aesthetic might also be adopted to make a piece suitable for a setting or purpose that demands something baroque.
