Ability to download paintings for wallpapers
> 2017 and still growing up in a culture that apparently hates making art publicly available for individual consumption and enrichment...
And the sad thing is that this site is still the best and most comprehensive resource of its kind (since being able to normally download images in low-res still beats the hell out of Google Art Project's copyright authoritarianism).
The WikiArt admins apparently have a twisted sense of humour though, given that "planned" seems to have meant going backwards in terms of functionality rather than making it easier to immerse oneself in the cultural legacy of humanity.
What happened to view all sizes and ability to download? I use these images for educational purposes.

"Planned" is obviously no longer believable. Shame!

I love the site, but please re-introduce the ability to download the original size images, as this is great for studying the work offline.
And having a feature "Planned" for 5 years does not look great in the public eye...
The option to "View All Sizes" appears to be removed. Can we either get an easy download in original size button, or have the view all sizes feature return?
in simple language...can you download the pictures, i.e., the "works of art" from various artists?

Koons is a genius. His use of color and brilliant metals is unsurpassed. Alfred Schrader 2014
been a long time since july 14 ,2011... come on?
Use "View All Sizes" below the image)
Or rather, a quick "Download Button", for instance, alt+click could instant-download the highest resolution available for Non-Copyrighted content.

You can do that even now by using various methods, but I'm pretty sure you mean there should be a download button. Yes, but I suppose this should only exist for paintings which are in public domain.
