This is something I'm not sure I've got a good grip on yet. So can anyone explain how esthetics must be a branch of philosophy?

Paraphrasing from Philosophy: Who Needs It (A) Rand lays out the five branches of philosophy thus:
I'd highly recommend Rand's "The Romantics Manifesto" as a good 'deep dive' into this area. To quote from the chapter "The Goal of My Writing" she says of art:
A. Rand, Ayn. Philosophy: Who Needs It, New York, Signet, 1984
B. Rand, Ayn. The Romantic Manifesto, New York, Signet, 1975.
