Looking for inspiration? Wanting to find that famous painting?
Then look no further than this BBC website – Your Paintings, a project to create a complete catalogue of every oil painting in the national collection.
The paintings are drawn from public collections in every part of the country, big and small, from the most famous to the completely unknown. They include the UK’s national museums and galleries, regional collections, the National Trust, as well as the less obvious public collection like those in universities, council buildings, hospitals and fire stations.
