January 2013: All 212,000 of the UK’s oil paintings are now online: The Public Catalogue Foundation and BBC have just completed their ambitious project to put all the oil paintings in the UK in public ownership on the web. The UK is the first country to achieve this in a scheme which saw 3,217 venues across the country taking part. As well as paintings held by museums and galleries, the project encompasses those owned by universities, local councils, community centres, zoos, hospitals, fire stations and a lighthouse. 80% are not on view and had never previously been photographed.
