Four Famous Painters

We apply archetypal analysis to a set of 4465 artworks by Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Henri Matisse. We compute \(k=32\) archetypes.

Image Decompositions

Archetypal analysis allows to decompose an image into its contributing styles. Below are some examples of these decompositions, computed with Gatys' style representation. The contributions of the archetypal styles are visualized in three ways:

  • as a texture synthesized using the archetypal style (left column)
  • as stylization of the image in questions, using a unit vector for each contributing style (top row)
  • as a sum of the (strongest three) contributing images
