Abstract: The formal structure of aesthetics systems is defined. Aesthetics systems provide for the essential tasks of interpretation and evaluation in aesthetic analysis. Kolmogorov's formulation of information theory is applicable. An aesthetics system for a class of non-representational, geometric paintings and its application to three actual paintings is described in the Appendix.
