Emotions

In the art of the Golden Age, almost nothing was more important than the ability to depict human emotions convincingly. For the exhibition ‘Emotions – Painted feelings in the Golden Age’ in the Frans Hals Museum, Hamdi Dibeklioğlu of the Pattern Recognition and Bioinformatics research group (EEMC) developed software that can analyse facial expressions. The software interprets the faces on paintings in terms of basic emotions such as happiness, sadness, fear, anger, surprise, repulsion and contempt. The exhibition runs until 15 February 2015.
