I think we concluded that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
I'm not sure who the "you" is that adds it. But certainly either the artist or the viewer could "add" beauty, if that's the best description you can come up with. There is no subtlety in that word, it is the "wax added budget chocolate" of aesthetic description.
