    • 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.

        • 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 you1

          • 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

            • Please, include the location of the work of art

              We have to know where is the painting and also if it is in a private collection and so on. Thanks

              • 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!

                • 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).

                  • 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.

                    • Museum Integration

                      Hi guys, I've been thinking about trying to use a camera (like a cell phone's) to be able to recognize pieces of art in museums to bring up information about the work, kind of like the entries in wikiart. would you be interested in a collaboration?

                      on my end, I would need access to the entire database of images in order to match the image to the artwork. I have a sense that the computer vision problem is relatively straightforward due to the 2D nature of artwork compared to general object recognition problems, and I would imagine that my app…

                          • Eliminate annoying css animation

                            The CSS animation at the bottom of each page,
                            consisting of something resembling four squares,
                            is highly annoying.

                            It is located right before the "footer"
                            and I believe it is included under the title
                            "standalone-loader-cube-wrapper".

                            It is not straightforward to prevent a browser
                            from displaying it. Although using firefox
                            this might be achieved by adding the following
                            line to userContent.css:

                            div.standalone-loader-cube-wrapper{display: none; visibility: hidden;}

                            However I would not know how to eliminate it
                            using other browsers. It would be simpler that
                            you consider eliminating at the source.

                            I have little doubt that many users, like myself,
                            shall be grateful if…

                                • Support for HiDPI screens

                                  If the work is available at a high resolution (3840 px +), it would be great to view the artwork at HiDPI or "Retina" resolutions.

                                  This can be achieved using the srcset attribute of css (https://webkit.org/demos/srcset/)

                                    • Can I Use Images in an Educational App??

                                      I want to use many images in this website for an app that will analyze them to see if they fit a certain art movement, it will be public for any one to use? am I free of trouble if I give all of the artist credit?

                                        • coordinate with Wikidata:WikiProject sum of all paintings

                                          The WikiProject sum of all paintings is a effort to get an item for every notable painting in WikiData. What's the purpose of this? Consider these questions: How many painting did Picasso create? Where are they located? Who owns them?

                                          Wikidata is an open data Wikimedia project. Wikidata items are licensed under CC0 (a public domain-like license). Data can therefore be pulled from Wikidata without attribution. Google has been doing this for a while. Wikipedia & other Wikimedia projects have templates & modules that pull data as well.
