A Proposed Method for Detecting Fake Art by Using B-Spline Curves

Abstract

This paper presents proposed method for detecting fake art by using B-Splinecurves. In this paper B-Spline curve is used with special technique helps to determinethe difference between the excellent copy and the real McCoy image. In the proposedmethod B-Spline curves are created for the McCoy and the image in question asdigital print for these images. The number of defined control points, generated curves,and the order of the polynomial segments of the generated B-spline curvesare animportant factors which determine the accuracy of detecting fake art.In order todetermine if the image in question is McCoy or not the detection process is executedby comparing the function values of generated B-Spline curves of the excellent copy(its digital print) with the function values of generated B-Spline curves of the McCoy(its digital print).
