The service provides search access to images and information about artworks from prominent galleries, museums, and even private collections worldwide. It was developed as part of the Art Genome Project, which is a long-term research effort to identify the characteristics of works of art that define, distinguish, and connect them. The service describes works of art via combinations of 800+ "genes" that identify characteristics such as associated movements within art history, subject matter, and formal qualities like media, materials, and techniques. API methods support multi-faceted search against the accumulated database of artwork descriptions. Methods support submission of search queries specifying combinations of the characteristics defined in the Art Genome. Methods also allow browse access to listings for exhibitions in which artworks have been displayed as well as search for specific collections of art.
