Reuniting Poussin ’ s Bacchanals Painted for Cardinal Richelieu through uantitative Canvas Weave Analysis

  title={Reuniting Poussin ’ s Bacchanals Painted for Cardinal Richelieu through uantitative Canvas Weave Analysis},
  author={R. Erdmann and C. Johnson and Mary Schafer and J. Twilley and T. Sawyer},
Art historical debate has percolated for more than half a century over the identity of the three Bacchanals (-) commissioned from Nicolas Poussin by Cardinal Richelieu for his chateau in Poitou, France. The subjects have been identified as the Triumphs of Pan, Bacchus, and Silenus, respectively. The success of this commission led to demand for the production of copies close in date to the originals, some of which are represented in major collections. There has been general consensus that… Expand
On the Power Spectral Density Applied to the Analysis of Old Canvases
This work presents a new framework to analyze and further characterize the paintings from their radiographs, and finds that the averaged power spectral density (PSD) provides a characterization of the whole cloth. Expand
Quantitative Canvas Weave Analysis Using 2-D Synchrosqueezed Transforms: Application of time-frequency analysis to art investigation
Quantitative canvas weave analysis has many applications in art investigations of paintings, including dating, forensics, and canvas rollmate identification. Traditionally, canvas analysis is basedExpand
Automatic Thread-Level Canvas Analysis: A machine-learning approach to analyzing the canvas of paintings
This article presents an algorithm capable of performing thread-level canvas analysis: the algorithm identifies each of the individual threads in the canvas radiograph and directly measures between-distances and angles of the identified threads. Expand
Oscillatory data analysis and fast algorithms for integral operators
This thesis introduces several novel synchrosqueezed transforms (SSTs) with rigorous mathematical, statistical analysis, and efficient implementation to tackle challenging problems in oscillatory data analysis. Expand


Canvas Matches in Vermeer: A Case Study in the Computer Analysis of Fabric Supports
Old master paintings were executed on various types of support, most commonly on wood panel or canvas, but also on copper and other metal sheets, and much more rarely on slabs of stone, such asExpand
Rembrandt: The Painter at Work
Rembrandt's intriguing painting technique stirred the imaginations of art lovers during his lifetime and has done so ever since. In this book, now revised, updated, and with a new foreword by theExpand
Velázquez in Fraga: a new hypothesis about the portraits of El Primo and Philip IV
The article discusses Spanish painter Diego Velazquez's 1640s portrait paintings "Portrait of Philip IV" and one depicting the dwarf El Primo. The author focuses on the technical study of "PortraitExpand
Weave analysis of paintings on canvas from radiographs
A spectral algorithm for measuring from radiographs the weaving densities of the horizontal and vertical threads that comprise a painting's canvas reveals the canvas's distinctive density variations and provides insights into how the canvas was prepared. Expand
Weave matching and dating of Van Gogh's paintings: an interdisciplinary approach
The article discusses the Thread Count Automation Project (TCAP) to analyze cavas types for 19th-century paintings. The project began at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, Netherlands analyzing theExpand
Whole-painting canvas analysis using high- and low-level features
Feature point analysis exploits brushstrokes and composition to merge several x-ray images into a single one, taking into account and removing both spatial and amplitude distortions. Expand
Interpreting Canvas Weave Matches
Automatic methods of calculating canvas thread counts from x-rays of paintings reveal a systematic pattern for warp and weft thread densities that persists along the respective thread directions.Expand
Random sample consensus: a paradigm for model fitting with applications to image analysis and automated cartography
New results are derived on the minimum number of landmarks needed to obtain a solution, and algorithms are presented for computing these minimum-landmark solutions in closed form that provide the basis for an automatic system that can solve the Location Determination Problem under difficult viewing.

A Density-Based Algorithm for Discovering Clusters in Large Spatial Databases with Noise
DBSCAN, a new clustering algorithm relying on a density-based notion of clusters which is designed to discover clusters of arbitrary shape, is presented which requires only one input parameter and supports the user in determining an appropriate value for it. Expand
