Background Deep learning has enabled reliable image classification and object detection. In our reseach, we focus on the transferability of deep learning techniques to the art domain. However, deep learning technologies are based on deep neural networks consisting of millions of parameters that nee...

This work exploits style transfer in combination with transfer learning to recognize characters in art historical images. Our approach focuses on recognizing two central characters in the “Annunciation of the Lord” scene from Art history, Mary and Gabriel across varied art-works from different artists, times and styles.
