Goal: Link all images of paintings to Wikidata.

Artwork template[edit]

To be able to link an image of a painting to Wikidata, the image needs to use {{Artwork}} or one of the templates build on top of the artwork template like {{Art Photo}}.

A lot of paintings use {{Information}} or some even no template at all. In most cases these can be switched to {{Artwork}}. In some cases paintings are included in a larger photograph, you can switch to {{Art Photo}}.

For {{Artwork}} replace {{Information with {{subst:Artwork/subst|subst=subst:. See for example https://petscan.wmflabs.org/?psid=816734 to get the files in Category:Paintings in the Netherlands by museum without the artwork template.

I think that paintings that use {{Information}} + {{CC-Layout}} and do not have {{self}}, {{own}} or {{CC-Layout}} are the clearest cases and could be safety converted into {{Artwork}}. I would use {{Artwork/subst(information)}} which is more customized for conversion from {{Information}}. Those might be possible to convert on mass using an unsupervised bot. Files with {{self}}, {{own}} or {{CC-Layout}} might be more tricky and might require either smarter bot or a human in the loop. I started {{Art Photo/subst(information)}} for those, which might be better for conversions from {{Information}}. Addition of Creator templates might be done afterwards. In the past I did some large job where I captured Author field of all the files in a subcategories of Creator template home categories and place them in the spreadsheet. Afterwards I tried many ways to match creator templates to author fields. If I had a match than I replaced author field with creator template. We could try something like that again. --Jarekt (talk) 17:06, 21 March 2017 (UTC)

Improve metadata[edit]

The goal is to get the images linked to Wikidata, to improve the chance of images being linked up with a painting item on Wikidata, we can add some metadata. This will increase the number and quality of suggestions at User:Multichill/Same image without Wikidata and d:Wikidata:WikiProject sum of all paintings/Image suggestions.

Institution[edit]

When {{Artwork}} has been added using the substitution method, an empty "institution" field is available. Petscan can be used to find the image that are in a museum category tree, but don't have the {{institution}}.

Creator[edit]

When {{Artwork}} has been added using the substitution method, an empty "artist" field is available. Petscan can be used to find the image that are in a artist category tree, but don't have the Category:Creator.
