Hi KateMuse, don't you (or someone in this museum) know, who is the author of this painting (?) and what is the year of its creation? --Túrelio (talk) 19:00, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Descriptions[edit]

Hi Kate, one of the reasons you had with the above files being nominated for speedy deletion was the way you filled in the description fields nd the way you added the licenses. Because the Wikimedia foundation and the servers are based in the United States, any reproduction of a two dimensional artwork, such as a painting, is considered a Commons:Derivative works, however much time, skill, resources etc that goes into scanning or photographing the work is considered irrelevant, the author in the description field should have been the original painter of the artwork, you would also have saved yourself the nominations if for date you had entered the dates that the artwork was created, not the date on which it was uploaded; for good measure adding the dates of the artist would have helped.

With regards the licensing if the artist died over 100 years ago, Commons considers the artwork to be Public Domain by reason of it being old, its nice that with File:Pride Hill.jpg Shropshire Museums gave their permission, however with regards to Commons because the artist died 160 years ago that permission is not needed.--KTo288 (talk) 21:29, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
