The world of art provided the starting point for this training. The Wikiart cataloguing categories and its body of images were used to teach a network to recognise artistic styles. In this situation, artificial vision is forced to tackle the idea of artistic style and movements and it does so from a purely formal point of view, eschewing any conceptual consideration which, by definition, is beyond its understanding. Whereas networks for classifying images are obsessive and compulsive, since they link everything with the vocabulary they have learned, this one generate connections between any image and artistic vocabulary.
