Hi all,

I'd really like to push for the VisualArtwork Schema proposal, which I 
proposed in May last year, to be formally adopted as soon as possible in 

The wiki version is at http://www.w3.org/wiki/WebSchemas/VisualArtwork, 
which contains an additional suggestion from another contributor to this 
list for a colorPalette property (which is a new Schema type, but I 
don't think the contributor ever added a draft for the colorPalette type 
on the wiki yet).

Since the colorPalette type hasn't been drafted up by the person who 
suggested it, I would be quite happy to go ahead without it. In the 
discussions on this list there didn't seem to be any enthusiasm for it 
(apart from the person who proposed it).

The draft RDFS/RDFa schema file at 
is a little out-of-date:

* I have renamed the "materials" property as "material" in the wiki, in 
line with Schema.org naming conventions
* I have renamed the "edition" property as "artEdition" in the wiki, for 
disambiguation with any other use of the word "edition"
* I have updated the descriptions of the properties in line with 
suggestions on this list in July/August 2013

I'm not familiar with either RDFS or Mercurial, so am hesitant to try to 
edit the RDFS/RDFa schema file myself - it would be great if someone 
more experienced with the technologies could do so.
