In 2011 we started the Art Genome Project, a classification system and technological framework that powers Artsy. It maps the characteristics (we call them “genes”) that connect artists, artworks, architecture, and design objects across history. There are currently over 1,000 characteristics in The Art Genome Project, including art historical movements, subject matter, and formal qualities. This is the story of the evolution of the data layer and nearest neighbor search technology, and the lessons learned, from MongoDB and PostgreSQL through Elastic Search.
