Abstract

The neuroelectrical and the eye-movements activities were collected in a group of 27 healthy subjects during their visit of a fine arts gallery displaying twenty paintings of Titian. Evaluation of the appreciation of the paintings was performed by using the neuroelectrical approach-withdrawal index (AW). AW index was estimated for two groups of ten paintings of Titian: one group was related to religious matter while the second was related to portraits. In addition, it was compared the population AW indexes estimated in the first 10 seconds of the observation across all the selected paintings with the AW index estimated in the last 40 seconds of the observation. The number and the total duration (in seconds) spent on the eye fixations performed by the subjects during the observation of the paintings was also analyzed. Results showed that the AW index was significantly higher during the observation of portraits than during the observation of the religious subjects (p
