see here -

I am getting the duplicate id "516df8029ad2d32b27000b58" (The Feast of the Gods painting). It's not a show stopper for me by any means but I thought you all should know.

Also - I had tried to email about the issue but I get an automated reply saying that it's no longer active.

Will take a look!

Apologies for engineering@, we closed that because of spam. I opened to get rid of any references and provide a better way to contact us (this list).

Hi John,

Thanks for this bug report! This is a known issue with our similar artworks query which surfaces when a work is attributed to two or more artists. It has been low priority but we will get round to it!

In this case both Giovanni Bellini and Titian (his apprentice) are attributed as creators of that particular work.
