Your Paintings is a website which aims to show the entire UK national collection of oil paintings. It is driven by the BBC in association with Public Catalogue Foundation (a charity that catalogues works in museums in the UK) and many museums and art galleries across the country.
At the moment, they have 63,000 works online with a goal of putting 200,000 paintings on the website.
It is possible to search by Artists and by Galleries & Collections.
Another interesting feature of the project is that all visitors can help improving the search capabilities on the site by tagging pictures.
