The Riddle of the Image: The Secret Science of Medieval Art

Buy
From monumental church mosaics to fresco wall-paintings, the medieval period produced some of the most impressive art in history. But how, in a world without the array of technology and access to materials that we now have, did artists produce such incredible works, often on an unbelievably large scale? In The Riddle of the Image, research scientist and art restorer Spike Bucklow discovers the actual materials and methods that lie behind the production of historical paintings.
 
Examining the science of the tools and resources, as well as the techniques of medieval artists, Bucklow adds new layers to our understanding and appreciation of paintings in particular and medieval art more generally. He uses case studies―including The Wilton Diptych, one of the most popular paintings in the National Gallery in London and the altarpiece in front of which English monarchs were crowned for centuries―and analyses of these works, presenting previously unpublished technical details that shed new light on the mysteries of medieval artists. The first account to examine this subject in depth for a general audience, The Riddle of the Image is a beautifully illustrated look at the production of medieval paintings.

Scalable Optimization via Probabilistic Modeling: From Algorithms to Applications (Studies in Computational Intelligence)
Scalable Optimization via Probabilistic Modeling: From Algorithms to Applications (Studies in Computational Intelligence)
Estimation of distribution algorithms (EDAs) address broad classes of optimization problems by learning explicit probabilistic models of promising solutions found so far and sampling the built models to generate new candidate solutions. By incorporating advanced machine learning techniques into genetic and evolutionary algorithms, EDAs can scalably...
