BBC hosts Your Paintings website

The BBC, in partnership with the Public Catalogue Foundation and public museums and collections, has launched the website Your Paintings, which “aims to show the entire UK national collection of oil paintings, the stories behind the paintings, and where to see them for real.” The site is searchable by artist last name and subject matter. So far they’ve posted roughly 63,000 paintings and hope to complete the project by the end of 2012.
