After Constable’s Clouds

Complex blues and greys of clouds in a painting by realist British artist John Constable.

The NEH level 2 grant was awarded to support “After Constable’s Clouds,” a project that is advancing art historical research through the innovative application of computer vision (CV) and machine learning (ML).

Elizabeth Mansfield, professor and head of the Department of Art History, and James Wang, distinguished professor of Information Sciences and Technology, have received a Digital Humanities Advancement Grant (DHAG) from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) for phase 2 of a project that uses computer-aided image analysis to examine the depiction of clouds in the paintings of John Constable, a 19th-century European artist noted for the striking naturalism of his landscapes.
