Hello Cindy,

In terms of the design of PROV, we use cases around data and the web. This
is not to say that you couldn't use PROV for representing the provenance of
art (indeed, I think you can) it was just not a core use case for the
group. For the specific case of fine art auction results, I definitely
think you can model this with PROV.

Thanks for your interest,
