"Normally, people’s reactions to art are considered subjective — Munch’s 
The Scream might instill a foreboding anxiety in you, but do absolutely 
nothing for your friend. However, artist Wassily Kandinsky feels that 
abstract art, what people would perhaps consider the most emotionally 
subjective form of art, is actually completely objective. He suggests 
that the emotional objectivity of abstract art lies in the 
characteristics of the colors and their interactions with one another. 
This would mean it can be taught to a computer."
