Here’s what you do. Click the Wikipaintings random link over and over. In fact, open 20 new tabs in the background. Now you’ve generated your own little art gallery.

Wiki paintings goal is to create the most “high-quality, most complete and well-structured online repository of fine art.”
We hope to make classical art a little more accessible and comprehensible, and also want to provide a new form of interaction between contemporary artists and their audience. In the future we plan to cover the entire history of art —- from cave artworks to the new talents of today.
Visiting art museums isn’t the only way to experience your artistic heritage.
The Scream by Edvard Munch
According to Munch, he was inspired to paint this scene as he was walking in a boardwalk with tow of his companions. As he stopped and his companions walked on, he looked up at the blood red sky and felt a “the scream of nature” moving through him.
