Dr.-Ing. Vincent Christlein

Vincent Christlein studied Computer Science, graduated 2012, and received his PhD (Dr.-Ing.) 2018 from the Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany. During his studies, he worked on the analysis of handwritings with focus on writer identification and writer retrieval. His research interests lie in the field of machine learning, computer vision, and computer graphics, particularly in image forensics, handwriting analysis, and historical document analysis.

  • Critical Catalogue of Luther Portraits (1519-1530)
    (Third Party Funds Group – Overall project)

    Quite a number of portraits of Martin Luther - known as media star of 16th century – can be found in today’s museums and libraries. However, how many portraits indeed exist and which of those are contemporary or actually date from a later period? So far unlike his works, however, the variety of contemporary portraits (painting and print) is neither completely collected nor critically analyzed. Thus, a joint project of the FAU, the Germanisches Nationalmuseum (GNM) in Nuremberg and the Technology Arts Sciences (TH Köln) was initiated. Goal of the interdisciplinary project covering art history, art technology, reformation history and computer science is the creation of a critical catalogue of Luther portraits (1519-1530). In particular, the issues of authenticity, dating of artworks and its historical usage context as well as the potential existence of serial production processes will be investigated.
  • Similarity learning for art analysis
    (Third Party Funds Group – Sub project)
    Overall project: Critical Catalogue of Luther Portraits (1519-1530)
    Term: June 1, 2018 - February 28, 2021

    The analysis of the similarity of portraits is an important issue for many sciences such as art history or digital humanities, as for instance it might give hints concerning serial production processes, authenticity or temporal and contextual classification of the artworks.
    In the project, first algorithms will be developed for cross-genre and multi-modal registration of portraits to overlay digitized paintings and prints as well as paintings acquired with different imaging systems such as visual light photography and infrared reflectography. Then, methods will be developed to objectively analyze the portraits according to their similarity.
    This project is part of a joint project of the FAU, the Germanisches Nationalmuseum (GNM) in Nuremberg and the Technology Arts Sciences (TH Köln) in Cologne. Goal of the interdisciplinary project covering art history, art technology, reformation history and computer science is the creation of a critical catalogue of Luther portraits (1519-1530).
