Popular Science News | UK’s Painting Collection Online

Popular Science News – UK’s Collection of 211,861 paintings have gone online on the BBC Website. For example, being a fan of JMW Turner, I searched for his paintings and was rewarded with a slideshow of 392 paintings, each of which can be individually viewed in fairly high detail.

The UK is the first country in the world to create such a catalogue. Only about 20% of these paintings are on public display so being able to see a digital version is invaluable. There is a plan to make these painting available as prints for around £20 plus postage or as a fridge magnet for £6.99. I’d prefer to be able to borrow one of the 80% that are not on display, like a book from a library, and hang it in my living room. I wonder if that facility would become available too?
