Record Type: Facet
Movable Works (facet (controlled vocabulary); N/A; N/A)
Note: For CONA, movable works include the visual arts and other cultural works that are of the type collected by art museums and special collections, or by an ethnographic, anthropological, or other museum, or owned by a private collector. Examples include paintings, sculpture, prints, drawings, manuscripts, photographs, ceramics, textiles, furniture, and other visual media such as frescoes and architectural sculpture, performance art, archaeological artifacts, and various functional objects that are from the realm of material culture and of the type collected by museums. Are monumental works “movable works”? For stained glass windows, architectural sculptures, frescoes, freestanding monumental sculptures, furniture, and such other large works, the works should be cataloged as movable works, because their characteristics (types of artists, materials, designs, etc.) have more in common with movable works than with architecture; such works should be linked to the built work with which they are associated, if any. Consider, would the works be studied within the discipline of art history rather than architectural history? If the answer is "yes," the works go under Movable Works. Historical works, or works that were planned but never executed, are placed here in the Movable Works or in Built Works hierarchies, because they were, or were intended to be, physical entities, not merely conceptual in nature; for multiples, place the concept of the multiple under Conceptual Works.
