Random Search button
Hi, I've only just discoved Wikiart and think it's wonderful. Just an idea - instead of having to expand Artworks to select "Random", I think a button would be great to introduce users to artists. I've enjoyed using the random feature, just think it could be made a bit easier :)5 votes
Add 3 key artists in Dutch painting history - Breitner, Israels and Poortvliet - to collection
Add artists George Breitner, Isaac Israels and Rien Poortvliet. These masters can't be left out in the Dutch collection of painters! All of them are richly featured in the biggest national museums of the Netherlands.5 votes
To add a comprehensive list of FEMALE ARTISTS per period or per century.
There were/are so many very talented and in their days accomplished female artists, who were either overshadowed by their husbands or simply 'forgotten'.
Let's put this right and make Art History shine a light on Art Herstory (50%!).5 votes
Browse by style
From an art discovery perspective, it would be nice to have the possibility to browse artists by style (and adding links to wikipedia information about these styles would be a plus !).
Great app by the way !5 votes
Descriptions of Styles
Whenever I browse artworks by style, I'd like to see a short description of the style I'm looking at. A small entry explaining what distinguishes the style and the history of it would help me to learn more about art. I'd know what makes the style distinct. The more I'm able to learn about art, the more I'd appreciate this website.5 votes
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 exponential5 votes
Sort favourites by genere / style / year / etc.
It's not segregated at all now.4 votes
Add artists to favourite
We can favourite paintings, why not the artists as well? This function shouldn't be too hard to include. It will be so much easier for the users to quickly find their favourite artists and all their works without 1. looking for their work 2. add this work to favourite 3. go to account and find this work 4. click on the artists. I'll be truly grateful if you add this simple feature. thank you14 votes
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!4 votes
People posting their own artwork?!
As I was browsing contemporary artworks, I noticed something. I don't exactly know the image posting process but it seems that some people are posting their own artworks. You can see them especially in the 21st century category. These people are mostly undistinguished, amateur artists(?) and their artworks are either naive or genre painting. I am heavily disturbed by seeing them in the database. If it's the moderators that posting these images then I'm very very disappointed. There should be only distinguished artists in the database!4 votes
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.4 votes

Ability to report if same painting has been added multiple times
I've seen that some paintings have been added multiple times, but I haven't noticed that there is a way to report this. In my opinion, this feature would be useful, and make artists' pages look better.4 votes
Ability to 'star' or 'favourite' artists.
I'd like to be able to keep track of my favourite artists I find while browsing (not just artworks.) I think it'd be convenient for each artists' page to contain a toggle star image button to favourite them. Then, under the account navigation (containing My Albums) have a 'Favourite Artist' section that leads to a gallery of the head-shots of all your favourite artists.4 votes
Please separate nude paintings from paintings that depict sexual acts.
Someone who is looking up nude paintings might not want to be exposed to paintings depicting sex. Please put them in different categories.4 votes
Hans von Aachen
Hello, first of all, thank you for such a great service. There is just one thing missing: one of the greatest german painters, Hans von Aachen (*1552).4 votes
Dear Sir / Madam,
Is it possible that you give each painting an indication of how much a painting is worth. I try my children to learn something of art history. And when there is a price tag, they could be extra impressed. And hopefully they will remember the painting more.
