Baroque is a unique period for emergence of
creative novelties in artistic ideas and technique improvement.
Baroque art shows the influence of pre-Baroque period’s
humanism perspective, and it exerted an extraordinary
influence on art following it. In the following, computational
intelligence and deep learning are applied to elucidate the
relationships among painting in the three periods. We outline
the methodology and reports a successful preliminary study
from limited data, which explored the concepts/techniques that
have remained, or disappeared during the historical changes,
and elucidated the connection among the Pre-Baroque, Baroque
Period and Post-Baroque Periods.
