As Paul Watson patiently points out, we're nearly done with the
"culture bundle" sketched back in April,
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-vocabs/2014Apr/0051.html

http://schema.org/workPerformed and with
http://schema.org/docs/releases.html#v1.9 periodicals and workExample
are now merged into the main site. Improving the description of visual
works is the last piece of the puzzle.

So, yes, let's try to wrap this up for VisualArtwork.

 I've just updated the old RDFS config, moving it from W3C Mercurial
into a github branch,
https://github.com/danbri/schemaorg/tree/sdo-visualwork
https://github.com/danbri/schemaorg/blob/sdo-visualwork/data/schema.rdfa#L10199

I've copied the three RDFa examples in from wiki:
https://github.com/danbri/schemaorg/blob/sdo-visualwork/data/sdo-visualartwork-examples.txt

... and updated the (now AppEngine-based) test site:
http://sdo-culture-bundle.appspot.com/VisualArtwork

This test build looks good so far. Here's what I see as obviously outstanding:

1. conversion of the examples to RDFa and Microdata, and fabrication of a
"pre markup" simple HTML version.

2. artEdition

Looking at the RDFS from last time I see I didn't create an artEdition
property, in hope we could generalise it.

Here's the definition from the Wiki,

"The number of copies when multiple copies of a piece of artwork are
produced - e.g. for a limited edition of 20 prints, 'artEdition'
refers to the total number of copies (in this example "20")."

And the example (which assumes the property exists),

"<span property="artform">Print</span> from <time
property="dateCreated" datetime="1962">1962</time> by Pablo Picasso.
Numbered from the edition of <span property="artEdition">50</span>,
each signed by the artist in pencil, lower right: Picasso.</p>"

To what extent is this concept art-specific? Are similar counts used
for other kinds of CreativeWork?
