Materials In Paintings (MIP): An interdisciplinary dataset for perception, art history, and computer vision.

In this dataset, we capture the painterly depictions of materials to enable the study of depiction and perception of materials through the artists' eye. We annotated a dataset of 19k paintings with 200k+ bounding boxes from which polygon segments were automatically extracted. Each bounding box was assigned a coarse label (e.g., fabric) and a fine-grained label (e.g., velvety, silky).

Note that the data can be browed and explored on https://materialsinpaintings.tudelft.nl. If you only want to download a few paintings, using that website might be faster.
