Thanks to everyone who participated in my post about art work notes taxonomy (Taxonomy for art work notes). A great discussion!
But now I’d like to back up and get opinions about whether or not an art work is even the right level of atomicity. I read a lot of articles and books about art works, so those are clearly literature notes. And it’s easy for me to see how to link out to separate notes about the artist, art movement, etc. But an art work can have so many ideas about it: how was it created, the history behind its creation, any controversies surrounding it, provenance, etc.
In your opinion, is an art work note stiil the atomic unit, even with all of that dense amount of information in it?
Thanks for your considered response!
