    ascetic

    The paintings are strangely ascetic.


    I found in dictionary that ascetic mean ----- avoiding physical pleasures and living a simple life, often for religious reasons.

    But this meaning is not matchable with the above sentence.

    So, could anyone tell me the meaning of `ascetic' in this sentence?

    Re: ascetic

    ascetic also means austere in appearance. Check out the meaning of austere.

    There is also aesthetic?

    All the best.
