Template:Artwork/doc

From Wikimedia Commons, the free media repository
Jump to: navigation, search

{{Artwork}} is an alternative to {{Information}} template used for the description of images of artworks, especially those residing in museums or galleries.
Faithful reproductions (without specific creative contribution from the photograph) of 2D art only require a license for the artwork, like {{PD-art}}. Copyrightable photos of 2D art and photos of 3D art (sculptures, structures, coins, gems, etc.) require a licence for the depicted artwork and a licence for the photograph itself. In such cases, {{Art Photo}} is recommended. See here for more information about copyright of the copied artwork.

Some examples:

Be aware what for 2D works like paintings only copyrights of the original artist are important so if the artist died more than 70 years ago most images found on the web or scanned from art books are OK. However in case of sculptures and other 3D works information about the photographer is important to justify the license.
