Paintings on the Map Project
This project extends the idea of Painters’ Lives Project to give a bird’s eye view for better understanding time and historical contexts. Arranging pieces of arts on the map gives interesting cross-section revealing leading countries in painting and how art movements coexisted.
The data is taken from Wikidata. The source list of artists was reduces to painters with a date of birth between 1800-1948, who had a citizenship in a European country. Coordinates on the map correspond to respective citizenship countries’ capitals. If a painter has two or more citizenships, the place of birth is taken.
