Abstract

Because of the great heterogeneity of subjects and styles, esthetic perception delineates a special and elusive field of research in vision, which represents an interesting challenge for cognitive science tools. With specific regard to the role of visual complexity, in this paper we present an experiment aimed to measure this dimension in a heterogeneous set of paintings. We compared perceived time complexity measures — based on a temporal estimation paradigm — with physical and statistical properties of the paintings, obtaining a strong correlation between psychological and computational results.
