Art Interpretation is a stage in the work of art criticism in which one identifies the work's expressive qualities, for instance, the meaning in the work, the mood created by the piece and the ideas being communicated by the artist to the viewer.

A work of art can be very complicated and may be interpreted in different ways by different professional, art critics, bloggers and groups. However, in art criticism, one's interpretation is personal, and it is based upon the information one has visually, eruditely, emotionally, revelatory and spiritually gathered from the composition. In essence, effective interpretation is only possible upon a basic evaluation, careful analysis, meditative interrogation and thoughtful consideration of the entire composition.
