Wikipaintings Dataset

The wikipaintings collection is a subset of paintings manually labelled according to the art epoch of the respective art epoch. All paintings and labels have been crawled from https://www.wikiart.org.

WikiArt presents both public domain and copyright protected artworks. The latter are showcased in accordance with fair use principle:

as historically significant artworks
as used for informational and educational purposes
as readily available on the internet
as low resolution copies unsuitable for commercial use

Please see https://www.wikiart.org/en/terms-of-use for further information.

The wikipaintings collection has been used in our ICIP 2016 paper:
