Analysis of work of art may be treated as some sort of classification of information: does the work is really artistic or not. This article is an attempt to introduce some classification criteria, though the author understands that the problem is extremely delicate and complicated. Attractiveness of work of art is determined by its proportions. The screen of a computer by itself is a mechanism for arranging proportions, however it is not able to resolve the problem of proportions completely. By starting with the horizontal (or vertical), which touches the main element of the picture, a grid can be constructed. Other elements of the picture become interlocked with the grid. In this paper, a method of construction of proportional grids, which can serve as an implement to creation of art or as criterion of coherence, artistic value and style of works of art, is proposed. Variety of proportional grids can be great, and we can create its from grids of coordinated geometrical forms.
