The aim of my paper is to show how to perceive the art and the influence of perception of it on human’s taste in so called standard aesthetics. I start with discussing levels of human’s perception. Then I turn to the question what is practise and theory contributing to the (aesthetic) taste. I distinguish between aesthetic pleasure and aesthetic experience. Next I argue that the (aestehtic) taste has subjective content. The taste is a complex or collection of aesthetic judgements (reasons).
