PD-Art and Greek vases[edit]

Hi Marcus. Although I disagreed with you about the copyright status of the photo of the kylix at Yale, I wanted to tell you that what I said in the discussion of the deletion request is true: I really do admire what you have done here over the years to make the Commons a more useful place for those who are interested in Greek and Roman art. When I first started searching the Commons for photos to use for teaching, back in the mid-2000s, it was still of somewhat dubious value, but there were a few people active in the area of ancient art back then who were clearly trying to increase the range of images and improve their organization, and in general make it more useful for serious academic purposes. You were one of those (along with others like Marie-Lan Nguyen (Jastrow), who became my personal hero -- I can't tell you how many of her images I used in my classes over the years!). Anyway, I was genuinely surprised to find that it was you who uploaded the photo of the Yale cup, since I didn't check the username before I tagged it for deletion. You've been doing this a lot longer than I have, and I meant no disrespect, even if we disagree in our interpretations of PD-Art.

This case does raise two interesting questions, though:

  • In the case of Greek vases, how much curvature is enough to qualify as "three-dimensional"? You're right that the bottoms of some 5th-century kylikes come very close to flat, much more so than deeper 6th-century forms, so where does one draw the line? And it seems odd (to me) to argue that it's okay to upload a photo of the interior of a cup when it's not okay to upload a photo of the exterior of the same cup.
  • More generally, if a fundamentally three-dimensional object (like a vase or a piece of furniture, for example) has a small area of two-dimensional decoration on it, does that small area qualify for PD-Art, regardless of the three-dimensional nature of the object as a whole? In other words, would a small painted panel on the back of a chair or the top of a chest qualify? I would assume not, but you have much more experience than I do in interpreting copyright law on the Commons, so I'd be interested in hearing what you think.
