Ah, I do hope that you know that people who post here are all human beings. As far as personal attributes are concern, no species are higher than another.

To add on, a quote from the Rijks Museum site on "rules of art" -
"Artistic freedom is a central ingredient in twentieth-century art - artists make their own rules. It was quite different until well into the nineteenth century, however.
