This documentation is transcluded from Template:Artwork/doc.

{{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.

The template automatically sets the following categories: Category:Artwork template maintenance

  • 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.

    TemplateData

    TemplateData is a way to store information about template parameters (the description of those and of the whole template) for both humans and machines. It is used by VisualEditor and possibly other tools like Upload Wizard.


    Existing template documentation
    At Wikimedia Commons, it is recommended to use {{TemplateBox}} with either useTemplateData=1 or useTemplateData=only on the /doc subpage and transcluding it with {{Documentation}} into the template. <nowiki>-tags can be wrapped around the arguments, if required, to avoid templates being expanded.

    Newly created template documentation and imports
    Another option, especially for imported templates, or for users with JSON experience, is placing raw <templatedata>-tags into the Wikitext of the template, as described in various Wikipediae.

    Discussion
    There is an ongoing discussion about that matter. Feel invited to comment if you are experienced in either way, your time permits and if you like to share your opinion or to make a suggestion.
