Many top paintings in the world are included on Wikipedia in some form or other: as an article illustration, mentioned indirectly as a museum highlight or visitor attraction, or as an achievement in a painter's career. This workshop demonstrates how these are added to Wikidata and invites you to help work to clean up the data on these paintings by connecting them to painting catalog items. Painting catalogs are key players in sourcing statements about these paintings. By playing with catalog data, you can learn more about data modelling and the differences between Wikipedia/Commons/Wikidata presentation of paintings.
