UK Oil Paintings -- Now Online

Annabel by Lucian Freud
The United Kingdom’s entire collection of oil paintings (almost 212 thousand!) in public ownership are now available online for viewing at Your Paintings. You can take a guided tour or search for paintings by artist or what elements are in the painting itself (dogs, etc.). You can even make and share your own collection of paintings. If viewing the paintings online spurs you to make a trip to the UK, the website has a list of venues where you can view the paintings in person.
