Welcome to, the online home for visual arts from all around the world.

Aim of the project
Our primary goal is to make world’s art accessible to anyone and anywhere. WikiArt already features some 250.000 artworks by 3.000 artists, localized on 7 languages. These artworks are in museums, universities, town halls, and other civic buildings of more than 100 countries. Most of this art is not on public view. With your active involvement, we are planning to cover the entire art history of the Earth, from cave artworks to modern private collections. We also provide you with tools for translation on as many languages as needed.

Financial status
The project is non-profit. We use donation and advertising as financial sources to cover hosting and technical service expenses. The content of the site is launched for free by our Volunteer Team – and you are welcome to join it. Check out ‘Donate’ and ‘ how to contribute’ section to know more about it.

Copyright policy
WikiArt presents both public domain and copyright protected artworks. The latter are showcased in accordance with fair use principle:
as historically significant artworks
as used for informational and educational purposes
as readily available on the internet
as low resolution copies unsuitable for commercial use

We respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement and remove copyright protected artworks, or block them for users from countries where infringement is alerted. But mostly we try to get artist’s permission to demonstrate his art, and confirm it with a credit line.
We provide information to help copyright holders manage their intellectual property online. If you think somebody is violating your copyrights and want to notify us, please submit the notice by

Great App - Missing Critical UX Features

The app is great, searching images and artist. It misses few critical user experience feature. Additionally it’s not really wiki as the end user cannot add or contribute to the contents as the wiki is supposed to do. The UX features missing include:

1.) Ability to Like / Favorite.
2.) Ability to create different collections of your favorite art.
3.) No Wiki details about the artist, the painting, the style, period. Link to Wikipedia page.
4.) Inability for people to save / make wallpaper on their phone for art.
5.) Events / Museums Info where people can go and see that particular art.
6.) Curated Audio review / criticism of art / artist for each image.

This leaves the user with a shallow experience and searching for another app that could provide the very basic feature for a great user experience. There was another app called “Wiki Art” that used to have some of these features but it’s no longer maintained.

Great content

I love WikiArt because of its all inclusive content. Not only it shows huge variety of artworks from different eras, but also the biography of many artists. It is like an online art school digital library. Thank you for everyone who made and keeps making this site shine.

Really not up to par yet.

I’ll start by saying there’s some serious potential here. I love having access to a database like this and the images are mostly great quality.
Regarding content, collections are largely incomplete and a great deal of artists aren’t on here.
Regarding features, it is easy to lose your place in the search, hitting the back button often takes you to the top or beginning instead of where you left off. You cannot favorite or follow an artist (only the art), but this doesn’t really matter anyway because the app does not sync with the website version - which is totally useless.
