Computing Art: Can a Computer be Taught to Take a Paintings Measure?

Published

Author(s)

Russell A. Kirsch

Abstract

The Ocean Park paintings of contemporary artist Richard Diebenkorn glow with a soft, hazy light. Translucent, luminous colors wash over barely visible skeletons of horizontal, vertical, and diagonal lines. Each canvas stands as a window onto an abstract landscape - a serene sea or a stretch of open land.
