Art appeals to our emotions
A large part of the appeal of art is emotional - some artists want to evoke strong reactions such as awe, anger, disgust, etc.
Knowing that an artist may deliberately evoke an emotional response, take a moment and question your immediate reaction. If a work angers you, ask yourself why it upsets you. If your feelings are happy, ask why the painting makes you feel happy.
