According to C. S. Peirce, aesthetics has nothing to do with the fine arts. Peirce never fully developed an aesthetic theory and he only put forth very sparse remarks concerning the artist and his work. In the following article, however, we will tentatively relate the artist and his activities to a part of Peirce's aesthetics. We will do this by identifying some consequences from Peirce's concept of the aesthetic ideal, the objectively admirable, and throughout the article, we will lean on Peirce's few remarks concerning the artist and the work of art.

Keywords:: C. S. Peirce; the aesthetic ideal; contribution to the growth in concrete reasonableness; the artist; the work of art
