Expression recognition from non-frontal faces is a challenging research area with growing interest. This paper works with a generic sparse coding feature, inspired from object recognition, for multi-view facial expression recognition. Our extensive experiments on face images with seven pan angles and five tilt angles, rendered from the BU-3DFE database, achieve state-of-the-art results. We achieve a recognition rate of 69.1% on all images with four expression intensity levels, and a recognition performance of 76.1% on images with the strongest expression intensity. We then also present detailed analysis of the variations in expression recognition performance for various pose changes.
