New Initiative Makes Items in the UK’s Public Sculpture Collections Available Online

From Antiques Trade Gazette:

The work by charity Art UK ensures items in the UK’s public collections will be available online, free of charge, to people all over the world.

Formerly known as the Public Catalogue Foundation, Art UK created a website that has catalogued the thousands of paintings and works on paper which are owned by public institutions.

Art UK began with oil paintings, digitising 200,000 of these, and then extended this to other pictures and works on paper and now to sculpture.

The works are owned by museums, universities and councils and many not on public display, meaning the Art UK website is the first time the public can view them.
