Work of Art Examples
This page documents examples on html markup of work of art information on the web.
This is part of a community effort to create a work of art microformat.
- Tim Gambell
Current practice for the xhtml presentation of works of art is characterized by extensive use of non-semantic presentational markup. There is little consensus on HTML tags or class names (when class names are used). See the following list of museum artwork information pages. View source for markup examples.
- Guggenheim Collection
- Library of Congress
- Metropolitan Museum of Art
- Peabody Essex Museum
- SFMoMA (provides metadata using meta tags in head)
- Yale Art Gallery
- Abend Gallery
- Camera Obscura Gallery
- Havu Gallery
- National Gallery of Victoria <-Example for possible integration other microformats?
