  abstract =     "In this paper we investigate and compare three
                 aesthetic measures within the context of evolutionary
                 art. We evolve visual art with an unsupervised
                 evolutionary art system using genetic programming and
                 an aesthetic measure as the fitness function. We
                 perform multiple experiments with different aesthetic
                 measures and examine their influence on the evolved
                 images. Additionally, we perform a cross-evaluation by
                 calculating the aesthetic value of images evolved by
                 measure i according to measure j. This way we
                 investigate the flexibility of each aesthetic measure
                 (i.e., whether the aesthetic measure appreciates
                 different types of images). Last, we perform an image
                 analysis using a fixed set of image statistics
                 functions. The results show that aesthetic measures
                 have a rather clear 'style' and that these styles can
                 be very different. Furthermore we find that some
                 aesthetic measures show little flexibility and
                 appreciate only a limited set of images. The images in
                 this paper might only be in colour in the electronic
