GLAM/Newsletter/May 2020/Contents/UK report
The Khalili partnership concentrated this month on improving articles relating to Japanese art and artists, using research resources provided by the Khalili Collections. Imperial Household Artist was expanded fivefold. Namikawa Sōsuke was expanded tenfold. Namikawa Yasuyuki expanded fivefold. New articles were created for the artist Yabu Meizan and for an art work, the Khalili Imperial Garniture. There were substantial additions to Japanese art, Japanese lacquerware, Japanese sculpture, Japanese pottery and porcelain, Japonisme, Meiji (era), and Ando Jubei.
Plácido Zuloaga has now passed DYK review, as has the Yabu Meizan article. Khalili Collection of Japanese Art also passed DYK review and appeared on the Main page on 28 May.
Just two new images were uploaded this month; we are still intending to return to bulk uploads in the future. Although the number of Khalili images on Wikipedia is relatively small (103 photos, 76 of which were added by this project), they are getting around 750,000 views per month.
Behind the scenes, we began work on a report on the first three months of the project to justify an extension beyond the current six-month pilot. Over the remaining three months of the pilot, we will focus on Swedish textiles, enamels of the world, and Aramaic documents.
