A new painting by Renoir authenticated thanks to artificial intelligence


It often happens that one doubts the authenticity of a painting. Despite current technologies, there are sometimes hesitations even among experts in the field. But recently, a artificial intelligence succeeded in formally identifying the author of the work “Portrait of a woman (Gabrielle)”. It is therefore indeed the famous painter Auguste Renoir. The coast of the painting was evaluated between 115,000 and 173,000 euros.

Doubt persisted about the origin of this painting which strongly resembled one of the painter’s models, but the Art Recognition company, relying on artificial intelligence, succeeded in authenticating the work. To do this, she had more than 200 paintings by the painter analyzed, which were compared to other works by artists contemporary with Renoir. The tool indicated at 80.58% probability that the work Portrait of a woman (Gabrielle) was indeed painted by the famous painter.

However, this result is not unanimous, some say that an artificial intelligence cannot take into account all the details as if we were asking an expert to identify a work with just a photo. Art Recognition indicates in return that AI is there to support expertise and not replace it. Still, with a probability of only 80%, it is normal that doubts persist…

Remember that AI is already used as an aid, with success, in many areas such as, for example, from 2018 with Google DeepMind for breast cancer screening.
