It is fascinating that photographers from 19 century were quick to use the limitations of the acquisition device to start a new art form inspired by impressionism. The potato starch grains of Autochromes becoming the strokes of paintbrush. I do believe that film grain, camera filters, uncoated lenses participate to the same technique. 
What about colourgrading? Colourists are often asked to bring extra nuances details production value etc but probably as often to hide, reduce, trim the unnecessary superfluous too real elements of an image in order to achieve its own style.
Just some thoughts.....
