that Painting and Sculpture should be deprecated, but there is a case 
for keeping Photograph for non-artistic uses (e.g. documentary photography).

That's maybe a bit indirect but keeps things clear. I don't live-and-breath Git(hub) workflow methodologies so there's a certain amount of making-it-up-as-we-go-along happening here. Anyway,  I've merged it in via
