The WikiProject:Modernisme is a project that aims to improve items and statements of Art Nouveau (Q34636) artworks, which are curretly spread in online databases throughout the Internet (and even offline sources). This project is inspired by WikiProject sum of all paintings, and is led by University of Barcelona (Q219615)'s GRACMON, a research group focused in Modernisme. ESM will watch over and curate this project. All are welcome to participate, please join us!
We will focus on Modernisme artworks located in Catalonia (Q5705). We consider that items that can be considered instances of cultural property (Q2065736) such as building (Q41176), public art (Q557141) and work of art (Q838948) (painting (Q3305213), decorative arts (Q631931), graphic arts (Q911059), furniture (Q14745), and textile (Q28823), among many others) preserved in museums and even private collections are within the scope of this project.
The scope of this project is also defined by the available data: at first we'll locate and import open and accessible databases, and will do our best to promote openness in public collections and databases.
Locate databases with useful data and import!
Please check Wikidata:WikiProject Modernisme/databases for a detail of located databases & breakdown of the properties that can be imported.
Define item structures
Define which properties are essential and must be filled in all items within the scope of the project. These will probably differ depending on the object (people, buildings, etc.). Please check Wikidata:WikiProject Modernisme/item structure .
Refine Wikidata items with data from Wikipedia
- Connect those items in ca:categoria:modernisme català with Art Nouveau (Q34636) using movement (P135) or architectural style (P149). Done
- Add movement (P135) or architectural style (P149) to those items linked to Catalan modernism (Q1122677) that should be linked to Art Nouveau (Q34636). Done
- Import data stored in infoboxes about Modernisme artworks and buildings that can be found in Catalan Wikipedia. Please check Wikidata:WikiProject Modernisme/infoboxes working on it
- Import data from Catalan Wikipedia (Q199693)'s heritage lists concerning buildings and monuments that belong to Art Nouveau (Q34636). Done
- Import data that can be deduced from categories (after a human confirmation!) as properties in Wikidata
- Example: All items in Category:Modernisme architecture in Catalonia (Q8637395) should be tagged as architectural style (P149) = Art Nouveau (Q34636), right? Well, mostly yes, but this needs some previous work to ensure all data are right.
- Fill Art Nouveau (Q34636) with data and references and solve the traditional misunderstanding with Catalan modernism (Q1122677). working on it
- Improve ca:Modernisme català and create individual articles for the most important variants of Art Nouveau so as to clarify the information currently available. See this thread (in Catalan) working on it
- Wikidata:ViquiProjecte Modernisme/Mapeig Modernisme with articles map and task to do within contents of several Wikipedias.
