Miscellaneous Mining Art     

Every art museum includes at least one major gallery that contains artworks by a wide range of artists, usually arranged more or less chronologically. This is necessary in the case of mining art because some artists who have not specialized in mining art may have produced only one or a just a few mining-related works in their career. Furthermore, especially for the Ancient and Medieval periods, the artists names may be unknown. We present such a selection here, gleaned from many sources and museums around the world.
