The traditional approach used for painted artwork studies is based on scholar’s observations regarding subtle differences in detail and brushing features. Given the empirical methods involved, in some cases interpretation may be biased by a series of aspects like personal experience, visual acuity or individual color perception. The drawbacks of this technique are aggravated by the lack of sufficient qualified personnel. The paper describes the preliminary steps needed for “ID-Art” platform development, an integrated solution with the goal of providing complementary scientific knowledge and mathematical arguments necessary for 2D artifacts investigation or other painted artwork authentication efforts.
