Multifractal analysis techniques are applied to patterns in several abstract expressionist artworks, painted by various artists. The analysis is carried out on two distinct types of structures: the physical patterns formed by a specific color ("blobs") and patterns formed by the luminance gradient between adjacent colors ("edges"). It is found that the multifractal analysis method applied to "blobs" cannot distinguish between artists of the same movement, yielding a multifractal spectrum of… 
Multifractal comparison of the painting techniques of adults and children
Statistical analysis of art, particularly of the abstract genre, is becoming an increasingly important tool for understanding the image creation process. We present a multifractal clustering analysis
A painting consists of objects which are arranged in specific ways. The art of painting is drawing the objects, which can be considered as known trends, in an expressive manner. Detrended methods are
Empirical Mode Decomposition Analysis for Visual Stylometry
A new form of EMD analysis for images is introduced and it is shown that it is possible to use its output as the basis for the construction of effective support vector machine (SVM)-based stylometric classifiers.
Multifractal analysis and authentication of Jackson Pollock paintings
The calculation of a related quantity, the "entropy dimension" of fractal measurements is discussed and the possibility of its use a measure or signature for Pollock's work is discussed.
Kolmogorov compression complexity may differentiate different schools of Orthodox iconography
The complexity in the styles of 1200 Byzantine icons painted between 13th and 16th from Greece, Russia and Romania was investigated through the Kolmogorov algorithmic information theory. The aim was
