Portraits of Benvenuto Cellini and Anthropological Methods of Their Identification
Nasobin, Oleg
International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, v11 n17 p9839-9855 2016
Modern methods of biometric identification are increasingly applied in order to attribute works of art. They are based on developments in the 19th century anthropological methods. So, this article describes how the successional anthropological methods were applied for the identification of Benvenuto Cellini's portraits. Objective comparison of facial parameters was used for a scientific method of face-biometrical identification. For purposes of biometric identification of Benvenuto Cellini's face through anthropological comparison 12 works of art were selected; in each of the selected portraits the following six anatomic points were marked, according to the Perrot's method were calculated ratio, which were analyzed. The biometric parameters of faces under comparison by the Perrot's method are represented as an arithmetic mean of the values of angles and indicators. The main characteristic facial details of Cellini's works, such as the shape of nose, eyes, protruding lower lip, and eyebrows are identified.
