The website aims to show the entire UK national collection of oil paintings, the stories behind the paintings, and where to see them for real. It is made up of paintings from thousands of museums and other public institutions around the country.

There are an estimated 212,000 oil paintings in the UK’s national collection with works by some of the greatest painters of the last 700 years, as well as paintings by thousands of lesser known artists.
