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.
