We are delighted to be part of the new Your Paintings website
The Public Catalogue Foundation (PCF), in partnership with the BBC, announced on 18th June 2012 that for the first time in history all of the 1,900 oil paintings in public ownership in Cumbria – many of them seldom seen before – are on display on the Your Paintings website for the nation to enjoy.
Your Paintings is a project to create a complete online catalogue of every oil painting in the national collection, at http://www.bbc.co.uk/arts/yourpaintings/
To help the BBC and PCF identify and catalogue what can be seen in each painting, the public is being invited to ‘tag’ the nation’s paintings. Tagging is fun, easy and you don’t need to be an art expert to do it. The results will allow future users of the Your Paintings website to find paintings of subjects that interest them. Your Paintings Tagger is at http://tagger.thepcf.org.uk
