Description: The paper begins by reviewing the use of randomness in the creation of pictorial art.  In particular, it describes the contribution of randomness in the painting of Pollock, Warhol, and Rothko, as they incorporated accidental and unplanned strokes in their works of art.   Then it describes diverse computer-based RNG (Random Number Generators) and how their output can generate images by the random specification of the position, color, and texture of their elements.  The authors illustrate how randomness can be incorporated into “computer supported, algorithm based art production.”
