  1. 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.

  4. "Study of a Classical Maiden" NOT A WILLIAM BLAKE SKETCH

    Hello WikiArt,
    I was planning on doing a study of a piece you have attributed to William Blake, poet, painter, philsopher. You have it titled, "Study of a Classical Maiden", but in doing my research, I could not find ANYTHING referring to this piece, nor did it exist in anthologies of his artwork. So, I reached out to the Blake Archive and their response was that this sketch does NOT belong to William Blake (engraver), as you have attributed, but instead they suspect Sit William Blake Richmond, the son of Blake's friend George Richmond.

  5. I suggest to extend the gallery of russian art and sculpture.

    There are a lot of russian artist that are not listed on the website. Wikiart should be a place for art from all over the world. It would be easier to study art. I can help in finding necessary images and other information.

  6. have a text only list of all artists, as I want to browse by artist. Pix of artist only consume screen space 4 me

    The current artist list has artist pictures and takes a lot of space per artist. I would like a big, text only list of all artists with images so I could see the whole list and somewhat randomly act on "I've heard of him/her, what do his paintings look like?" The current list where you only see only a few of the available artists on the screen at once is not as effective for this interactions. Thanks for a wonderful site.

  11. Add RALPH STEADMAN to the artist database

    Ralph Steadman is probably best known for his work with author and journalist Hunter S Thompson but his artwork is amazing and he really needs to be recognized for the great artist that he is.

    Thanks!

  14. Galleries for Art Styles

    I enjoy exploring styles of art, but on the page for art styles it is organized by artist, and when I open the gallery of paintings by clicking on one, it includes all of the artist's paintings (which may not be of the same style.) This isn't always a problem (I may like the artist as a whole), but there are times when I am only interested in seeing a particular style. I would prefer to have the option to limit the paintings of an artist shown to those of a particular style or styles, and/or to have the ability…

  15. Add content

    Please add information on the works. Like the context, stylistic, iconographic, formal analysis of the work. I have an art class and it is the only thing missing so I can study on this site. It's very great!

  19. Liked paintings.

    I really appreciate this app, but I suggest that you add a "liked paintings" or "favorites" section so I can find my favorite ones easily.

  20. Add the French artist, Jean Baptiste Auguste Vinchon (5 August 1789 – 1855)

    I was surprised that Jean Baptiste Auguste Vinchon (5 August 1789 – 1855) is missing from this encyclopedia. Information about him is in Wikipedia at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auguste_Vinchon
