Hello! I coded a bot to add descriptions to instance of (P31) painting (Q3305213) items. By now it supports es, ca, gl, ast, oc and he (see example). Could you help me to add more languages? Thanks. Emijrp (talk) 23:01, 9 March 2017 (UTC)

Same painter ?[edit]

Seems different, and yet strangely similar ? --Zolo (talk) 15:55, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

One male, one female or two painters ?[edit]

Another one: Zolo (talk) 11:48, 2 April 2017 (UTC) All identifiers in Percy Elizabeth Flora Thomas (Q21463241) refer to a "Percy Thomas" (1846-1922). Most of them state or assume that he wa a male. But one of the links use a longer name, [ Percy Thomas that sounds pretty feminine. This is just one link, and with very little detail, so it could well be wrong, but it is also possible that other databases just assume she is a male, as this is more or less the default option, even more for someone named Percy. In case anyone feels like investigating a further.. --Zolo (talk) 11:48, 2 April 2017 (UTC)

Request: Add documentation about "on loan" items[edit]

Hiyo. I was hoping to add information to The Bookworm (Q468217) about how it is currently on loan to the Leopold Museum (Q59435). [I saw it! And a few dozen others by the artist. A lovely collection.] I tried searching through the archives, and I see a few threads discussing the issue, but I'm not sure what the practical/final advice is...

Please could someone who understands the current situation, regarding location (P276) and collection (P195) and exhibition history (P608) and owned by (P127) and any other relevant properties, please add info to this project's page (and/or Wikidata:WikiProject Visual arts/Item structure), to demonstrate how to use these potentially identical or different properties? Thanks! :-)

(Sidenote: For the specific example,[1] I cannot find the beginning/end date of the loan period - if anyone can help with that, too, it'd be appreciated.) Quiddity (talk) 00:21, 27 May 2017 (UTC)

Showcase items?[edit]

I recommend adding a section on this project page, linking to a few complex Wikidata:Showcase_items (examples almost always help!). I see that The Night Watch (Q219831) is a proposed showcase item, but I'm not sure how old that proposal is, or if perhaps there are more or better (more complete/complex) items that could be listed as exemplary examples. Thanks! Quiddity (talk) 00:25, 27 May 2017 (UTC)
