Description:
Find a painting, find the spot, and take a current picture at the same spot towards the same location.
Expanded Description:
Photograph the scene in a painting on public view and record accurate coordinates.

Many paintings depict a real scene. Find where the artist set up their easel to take your photograph and record those exact coordinates with your GPSr.

The painting must be on public view. Paintings explicitly for sale in commercial galleries are not allowed. Although all paintings are technically for sale, except ones owned by public bodies, your subject needs to be publicly accessible. On loan to a exhibition gallery is public access.

A painting online is publicly accessible, but where is the original? You do not have to visit the original.

Group will also accept images printed from wood and metal engravings.

Name your waymark after the painting name and artist. Include the city/town and country.

Photos
Two images needed.

Also upload a photo of the painting either taken by you or from another source if the copyright allows it. Please credit all sources. Somehow viewers need to see both your photograph of the topic and an image of the painting. If there are some copyright problems you have to provide a link to the painting.
