This is a website which presents art.
I suppose you could consider it an inside online art museum which looks much better on your computer.
You can explore through the galleries by travelling through the frames.
This museum is dedicated to the free propagation of art. All copyright has been voided for the images on this site.
It's been built by taking photographs of innumerous frames and paintings and gallery spaces.
By swapping them all around with one another and sorting them out I've created this unique collection here.
I’ve done my best to organise things into coherent sets and rooms for you in order to the showcase these art pieces appropriately.

Beware however! I've held nothing back with regards to the edits. This project has originated from my own personal love of recreating and re-interpreting of the work of others, and is the result of many hundreds of hours of editing the paintings in these collections. They're all retouched. In some cases, they vary significantly from their original appearance.

It's important to point out that, with two exceptions, these pieces are in completely different frames than originally showcased. This museum has been independently curated and presented.
The rooms themselves are transformed: erased frames, washed walls, and I’ve got rid of the little plaques that tell you information about the paintings specifically because I find them distracting — I sometimes find myself too-inclined to spend too much time with my eyes on reading words instead of watching pieces of paint dry.

Obviously art needs context though, so there are words for guidance here and there. Such introductions are minor and unobtrusive by design.

The purpose of this website is to spread & showcase re-framed public domain paintings.
Hello, my name's Yaz, and it's nice to meet you.
I like editing pictures of paintings and I also dabble in irreversible thermodynamics and bayesian statistics.

If you want to see pictures I’ve taken that are not of other people’s paintings then you can follow me personally on Instagram  or listen to random things occasionally probably on Twitter

There is also a Pictures of Paintings Instagram Account that I can really recommend for a daily dose of artwork delivered directly to your virtual doorways. You can contact me by email at hello@picturesofpaintings.com
For this, truly, I must sincerely apologise.
You see, I am not a website designer and building this thing has been a big effort.
Alas, it has proven to be beyond my reasonable ability to create a mobile version of this website that I am satisfied with.
I must re-iterate that this website looks so much better on your computer.

One day, it might be possible to build an app. We shall have to see.
