If you're blind:

Does it help if we tag abstract art images in toots with an "alt" description? What kind of description do you appreciate?

(my take is: I label abstract paintings with just "abstract painting" so as to make them easy to ignore but I don't try to describe them because it would be futile in my opinion much like summarizing poetry)

@mjambon for me personally labeling it as abstract art is fine. I wouldn't ask someone to summarize poetry by poetries very nature. Using that same logic there are just some visual things that can't be accurately summarized any other way than looking at them.
