  1. Remove animation

    • I wish I didn't have to scroll and scroll to get to the end of the chronological output of a painter.

      Well I think if one is looking at a painter's output chronologically there should be page numbers so I don't have to scroll and scroll to get to their late years.

      • Allow to browse by license

        It would be good to be able to browse art which is of public domain and free to use, so we can use it for apps without copyright issues

        • What about David Hockney?

          Is there a cut off date for artists? Is Hockney too contemporary?

            • 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 :)

              • I wish I could find "John Maler Collier" here!

                John Maler Collier is one amazing English artist with some remarkable artworks like Lady Godiva, Lilith, Tannhäuser in the Venusberg. He painted in the Pre-Raphaelite style, and was one of the most prominent portrait painters of his generation.

                More details about him can be found here:

                • 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

                    • 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 !

                        • "Vaga copyright"

                          What is this? An artist's entire collection is subject to copyright law if the artist hasn't been dead for 70 years? Is this true??? It doesn't seem to make sense that one 150 year old painting is fair use but another is not because of the date when the artist died! Can we have some clarification on this?

                            • 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!

                              • 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.

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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.
