Computer-Aided Reclamation of Lost Art
MetadataShow full item record
Based on previous research on super-resolution and colour correction by example, the present project employs such techniques towards a high-quality reclamation of lost art. The aim is to produce high-quality images of nowadays destroyed or missing paintings using the correspondence between similar artworks available in both low and high quality images. Several approaches for both super-resolution and colour correction techniques have been studied, implemented and tested to result to the most efficient and appropriate to be used. This project is an attempt that has never been done before and the successful reclamation of lost art initialises a new area of colour imaging applications in fine art. It reveals unlimited possibilities in the domain and establishes the potential of further attempts in this direction.
