This paper deals with relations of mathematics and fine art with a focus on geometric structures captured as visual art compositions. It aims to show similarities between mathematical and artistic solutions applied in the creation of a piece of work---artistic masterpiece or mathematical assumption. Some ideas are brought about their common underlying principles and motifs together with the confrontation of scientific and artistic views on the mission of creative processes in mathematics and visual art.
