    The large volumes of artistic visual data available to museums, art galleries, and online collections motivate the need for effective means to retrieve :relevant information from such repositories. The paper proposes a decision making framework for content-based retrieval of art images based on a combination of low-level features. Traditionally, the similarity between two images has been calculate... View full abstract»

    There is an accelerating demand to access the visual content of documents stored in historical and cultural archives. Availability of electronic imaging tools and effective image processing techniques makes it feasible to process the multimedia data in large databases. A framework for content-based retrieval of historical documents in the Ottoman Empire archives is presented. The documents are sto... View full abstract»

    The paper presents work on the retrieval of artworks for color artistry concepts. First, we confirm the view that the query-by-example paradigm, fundamental to current content-based retrieval systems, is able to extend only limited usefulness. We then propose a concept-based retrieval engine based on the generative grammar of elemental concepts methodology. In the latter, the language by which col... View full abstract»

    The paper addresses learning-based characterization of fine art painting styles. The research has the potential to provide a powerful tool to art historians for studying connections among artists or periods in the history of art. Depending on specific applications, paintings can be categorized in different ways. We focus on comparing the painting styles of artists. To profile the style of an artis... View full abstract»

    A widespread use of three-dimensional (3D) models in cultural heritage application requires low cost equipment and technically simple modeling procedures. In this context, methods for automatic 3D modeling of textured objects can play a central role. Such methods need fully automatic techniques for 3D view registration and for the removal of texture artifacts. The paper proposes an image processin... View full abstract»

    Three-dimensional digital modeling of heritage works of art through optical scanners, has been demonstrated in recent years with results of exceptional interest. However, the routine application of three-dimensional (3D) modeling to heritage conservation still requires a systematic investigation of a number of technical problems. The paper describes the process of acquiring a 3D digital model of t... View full abstract»

  • Reconstruction of sculpture from its profiles with unknown camera positions

    Profiles of a sculpture provide rich information about its geometry, and can be used for shape recovery under known camera motion. By exploiting correspondences induced by epipolar tangents on the profiles, a successful solution to motion estimation from profiles has been developed in the special case of circular motion. The main drawbacks of using circular motion alone, namely the difficulty in a... View full abstract»

    A new optoelectronic system is proposed for three-dimensional (3D) texture measurement. It is based on a projection unit in which light, coming from a laser diode coupled to an optical fiber, impinges on a diffractive optical element (DOE) to produce sinusoidal fringes. If the projected fringe pattern is viewed at an angle different from the projection angle, the fringe profile is phase-modulated ... View full abstract»

    Image sequence restoration has been steadily gaining in importance with the increasing prevalence of visual digital media. The demand for content increases the pressure on archives to automate their restoration activities for preservation of the cultural heritage that they hold. There are many defects that affect archived visual material and one central issue is that of dirt and sparkle, or "blotc... View full abstract»

    This work presents a novel algorithm using color contrast enhancement and lacuna texture synthesis is proposed for the virtual restoration of ancient Chinese paintings. Color contrast enhancement based on saturation and de-saturation is performed in the u'v'Y color space, to change the saturation value in the chromaticity diagram, and adaptive histogram equalization then is adopted to adjust the l...

    This paper proposes an approach for the combined image authentication and compression of color images by making use of a digital watermarking and data hiding framework. The digital watermark is comprised of two components: a soft-authenticator watermark for authentication and tamper assessment of the given image, and a chrominance watermark employed to improve the efficiency of compression. The mu... View full abstract»
