" is powered by The Art Genome Project, an ongoing study of the characteristics that distinguish and connect works of art. evaluates artworks along 700+ characteristics (we call them genes)—such as art-historical movements, subject matter, and formal qualities—to create a powerful search experience that reflects the multifaceted aspects of works of art."
