Digital Engravings and One Liners : Understanding and Modeling Artistic Renderings

Alfred Bruckstein
Technion - Israel Institute of Technology

We shall discuss the topic of "reverse engineering" artistic renderings, like the

classical techniques of engraving that culminated in Durer's amazing art and the

modern one-liner drawings of Calder, Cocteau and Picasso. The mathematics is

interesting, the challenge in emulating art, formidable.
