We have approached the difficulties of automatic cataloguing of images on which the conception and design of sculptor M. Planas artistic production are based. In order to build up a visual vocabulary for basing image description on, we followed a procedure similar to the method Bag-of-Words (BOW). We have implemented a probabilistic latent semantic analysis (PLSA) that detects underlying topics in images. Whole image collection was clustered into different types that describe aesthetic preferences of the artist. The outcomes are promising, the described cataloguing method may provide new viewpoints for the artist in future works.
