The WikiPaintings site sounds like a great idea: it is a Wikipedia-inspired encyclopaedia that contains all the relevant information about artists and their works that's easily accessible and as comprehensible as possible. Seeing the day and age we live in, I just hope no museum decides to sue them.
The project aims to create high-quality, most complete and well-structured online repository of fine art. We hope to make classical art a little more accessible and comprehensible, and also want to provide a new form of interaction between contemporary artists and their audience. In the future we plan to cover the entire history of art -- from cave artworks to the new talents of today.
The project is non-profit. The site will not contain advertising in any form and its creators do not intend to make profit from the activities or sale of the project. Initial work on the establishment and maintenance of the site is paid from funds of the initiative group, but later we hope to cover the costs through donations from users.
