Numiko have been instrumental in developing the freshly launched Your Paintings website for the BBC which coincides with the broadcasting of ‘Hidden Paintings” – the umbrella title to 11 separate programmes to be broadcast on BBC One across England at 6pm on Sunday 26 June.
Previously hidden away, 200,000 paintings that document our rich history will be accessible on the web, for everyone to enjoy, for free. The first phase has gone live today starting with a whopping 63,000 paintings to see, and it will eventually build up to the 200,000.
It’s a really valuable project for anyone with an interest in art, from professional art historians, through to people who want to see Turner’s famous Yorkshire skies for themselves.
