Still in beta mode, with room to grow, it is surprising the WikiPainting did not exist before. The good news is: it exists now and is growing quickly.
Faceted searching by artist and artworks among other things let you wander the halls of this virtual museum on your own initiative. Explore the evolution of a personal style or the favored subject of an artist throughout time.
This non-profit, online repository for fine art has the ambitious goal of covering all of art history. And we aren’t talking just the canon here, everything from natural pigments on a stonewall in a cave to something a bit beyond MS Paint. Contribute content to WikiPainting if you can. Help it become a community tool for enriching our collective knowledge of art history.
