Can we start bfgs from a previous state?

I have tested my model for 10, 50, 150 iterations, now I want to try 200+ iterations to get better results. It seems a waste to always start from the beginning. is there a way for us to start bfgs from a previous states?

below are my experiments with a starry night style image.

I think you can look at this paper that talks about color preservation. It would help you get closer to the goal.

Sure, just feed in your current version of x, rather than initializing x to random.
