  2. Add Michelangelo's Tondo

    Why is the Tondo of Virgin and Child with the Young St. John. 1503-1504 missing? There must be copyright free images of it somewhere.

  3. Alfred Sisley and Camille Pissarro

    The Bridge at Moret, 1888 is by Alfred Sisley not Camille Pissarro. His signature is in the lower left corner and it goes with the many other paintings he did of the Bridge after he moved to Moret-sur-Loing. :)

  4. Allow intertextual links

    Very often painters will paint within the history of painting, (or even of other Arts), and there should be some way for users to create intertextual links between paintings. this could be as simple as for example showing Gerhard Richter's series of paintings where he repaints the Annunciation of Titian, to other things like the connection between the Arnolfini Portrait and Las Meninas, and so on, and so forth...!!! Yay!

  5. Allow users to upload Artwork

    I and many other Art researchers have very high quality scans of images, which we could upload. Of course then moderators would have to sift through it all, and someone would have to choose the best images.... but still, it would be a good way to go exponential

  6. Add a zoom fuction

    The most obvious thing missing int he current version is a zoom function. Ideally, for research, the images would be of super high quality allowing us to see at a higher resolution than the eye

    Looks like a painting by Ed Hopper was mixed in with Andrew Wyeth.

  9. PLEASE don't simplify art!

    Art is great and beautiful, but also complex, confusing and frustrating. Using the same historicist approach that dictates a certain path of art movements through time is allowing for the continued misinformation of the general public, and insuring that poor art historians and critics remain in positions of power (and so the art market prevails over art itself). An encyclopedia of painting is possible, but grouping these artists across time under art "movements" is ignoring their own, individual, nuanced trajectories full of unexpected twists and turns. Please do not disseminate concepts that are still in discussion. The idea of art…

  10. Browse by museum or collection

    Fantastic site. How about adding the ability to browse by museum? Great for when you remember where you saw a painting but can't remember the artist's name. Thanks for listening.

  11. Extending "Account" Features

    It would make the website more dynamic if it had features akin to last.fm, whereby users can (a) love paintings (b) favourite artist, allowing for easy return to liked content. This information could be shared with others, along with (c) recently viewed paintings.

  12. original work dimensions

    the schiele works i'm looking at don't have dimensions in cm (or anything) that i can see ... this might be useful to get a sense of scale and appreciate how detailed particular works are

    thanks,
    amazing site

  13. Leonardo da Vinci

    Chronology. Whoever put this together did it in a thoughtless manner. Even if you are not very familiar with the works, it is patently obvious that a "study" for a painting is earlier than the painting itself. There are several instances where the studies are shown after the painting.

    Put all studies for a particular work immediately before the work itself, for easy comparison. Don't separate them with a drawing of a machine that is unrelated.

    Be aware that very very few of Leonardos paintings are reliably dated. This means that the studies are not dated either, unless they happen…

  14. Include a genre tab

    I love your site -- however, it would be extremely helpful if there was a "Genre" tab or something along those lines to help with the search. I wanted to search "byzantine" but the search came up only with artists and artworks -- both of which were not helpful to my ongoing search of good information and pictures of byzantine mosaics.

  15. GoogleMap Location

    I would love to see the current location (museum, gallery, etc) of the original painting on a GoogleMap. It would also be really cool to see where the painting was actually created by the artist.

  19. As an artist and an art-lover I really appreciate this encyclopedy, the quality of the images and the multiple search options I haven't fou

    As an artist and an art-lover I really appreciate this encyclopedy, the quality of the images and the multiple search options

    I haven't found Hungarian painters in your database.
    I suggest:
    Philip De Laszlo (very famous painter)
    Adolf Hirèmy-Hirsch symbolism
    Victor Vasarely (founder of the pop-art)
    Mihaly Zichy realism
    Gyula Benczur realism
    Mihaly Munkacsy (realism - see for example the passion triology)
    CSONTVÁRY KOSZTKA, Tivadar (surrealism)
    Vilmos Aba-Novák
    Pal Szinyei Merse impressionism

    and so many more

    you may browse http://www.hung-art.hu/index-e.html

  20. tool tip info

    since the titles of the works (or detail) are mentioned below the thumbnails in the 'chronology' strip, perhaps it will be appropriate and helpful if the tool-tip that appears on hovering over a thumbnail gives more information like date and series (or style/ genre) instead of repeating the title
