BBC - "Your paintings"

I can imagine that the first time someone at the BBC launched the idea to create a web site that included all fine art paintings in the UK, in public museums, galleries, and private collections, he or she was ridiculed. Surely that would be an impossible task. Well, here we are, and it has gone live, with 210,000 paintings by over 37,000 artists made available for perusal behind your PC. An incredible treasure trove for sure.
