The good things keep on coming...


JISC OpenArt has published an ontology, sample data for the ontology, 
and the first (substantial!) entries in its database. The database is 
here. Content is BY-SA :


"The art world in Britain 1660 to 1735 publishes primary sources and 
research tools for the study of the arts in Britain between the 
restoration of Charles II and the opening of Hogarth's St Martin's Lane 
Academy. Launched in October 2011, this long-term project will create a 
large body of transcribed sources that will underpin secondary 
databases, to include a biographical dictionary, a topographical index, 
a calendar of art sales and a database of transactions."

(I'll update the OpenART page on the Data Hub to reflect all this.)
