In this paper an attempt is made to retrieve the relevant paintings based on the approach of the artist using Generalized Bivariate Laplacian Mixture Model (GBLMM). This article helps in understanding the outline of assorted artists and help as a means to categorize a scrupulous painting based on the style or the text ingrained within the images. To profile the artist style GBLMM is used. The projected model helps to discriminate the strokes of the artists and lend a hand in the classification of paintings. The proposed model is implemented using high resolution Chinese painting images.
