This is a mixed category with paintings, sculptures etc. Parent categories can only be used if all files in the category apply. Therefore this category must be separated into subcategories of paintings or sculptures only.--Oursana Category should be renamed: Works by Thomas Eakins in the Philadelphia Museum of Art see Category:Works by artist results works ..by museum (talk) 14:15, 11 August 2013 (UTC) see also Category:Thomas Eakins works at the Hirshhorn Museum Oursana (talk) 15:55, 11 August 2013 (UTC)

Things get complicated with Eakins. Museums collect and display his paintings, his drawings, his sculptures, and his photographs. Therefore, a category of "works" for each museum would seem to make more sense that four separate categories for every museum. Is there a logistical reason why this would cause a problem? -- BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 17:19, 14 August 2013 (UTC)
