Prose for a Painting

Painting captions are often dry and simplistic which motivates us to describe a painting creatively in the style of Shakespearean prose. This is a difficult problem, since there does not exist a large supervised dataset from paintings to Shakespearean prose. Our solution is to use an intermediate English poem description of the painting and then apply language style transfer which results in Shakespearean prose describing the painting. We rate our results by human evaluation on a Likert scale, and evaluate the quality of language style transfer using BLEU score as a function of prose length. We demonstrate the applicability and limitations of our approach by generating Shakespearean prose for famous paintings. We make our models and code publicly available.

Der Revoluzzer

Der deutschen Sozialdemokratie gewidmet

War einmal ein Revoluzzer,
Im Zivilstand Lampenputzer;
Ging im Revoluzzerschritt
Mit den Revoluzzern mit

Und er schrie: „Ich revolüzze!“
Und die Revoluzzermütze
Schob er auf das linke Ohr,
Kam sich höchst gefährlich vor

Doch die Revoluzzer schritten
Mitten in der Straßen Mitten,
Wo er sonsten unverdrutzt
Alle Gaslaternen putzt

Sie vom Boden zu entfernen,
rupfte man die Gaslaternen
Aus dem Straßenpflaster aus,
Zwecks des Barrikadenbaus

Aber unser Revoluzzer
Schrie: „Ich bin der Lampenputzer
Dieses guten Leuchtelichts.
Bitte, bitte, tut ihm nichts!

Wenn wir ihn’ das Licht ausdrehen,
Kann kein Bürger nichts mehr sehen,
Laßt die Lampen stehn, ich bitt!
Denn sonst spiel’ ich nicht mehr mit!“

Doch die Revoluzzer lachten,
Und die Gaslaternen krachten,
Und der Lampenputzer schlich
Fort und weinte bitterlich

Dann ist er zuhaus geblieben
Und hat dort ein Buch geschrieben:
Nämlich, wie man revoluzzt
Und dabei doch Lampen putzt

-- Erich Mühsam
