Influence Networks: the Students of Paul Sachs and F. Lane Faison


Above: Some students of Paul Sachs and F. Lane Faison, along with a glimpse of some of the institutions where they studied or worked. (Wikidata Query November 16, 2020).  

(The graph misses a lot of data which has not yet been entered in Wikidata.)

Let's try to extend the graph to include some more information about the other teachers of Sach's and Lane's students

see Wikidata Query : 

The datavisualization, while potentially interesting, is still clumsy and hard to read given the limits of a computer screen.
How can we zoom in on the networks we want to explore? 
How to transform a graph of this type into a truly useful tool for exploring networks of influence in the art world?
Is it by improving the underlying data, by improving the Wikidata query, or by switching to another more flexible, interactive tool for dataviz and navigation?

Could the addition of color help?
