National Gallery website

The UK’s National Gallery launches new website

The UK’s National Gallery has a new website, courtesy of studio Bureau for Visual Affairs, who worked on both the information architecture and the design of the site. Bureau was briefed to make the user experience “a much more visual and inclusive one”. More than 2,300 paintings from the Gallery’s collection can now be viewed on the site, which are listed by artist and also by the century in which they were painted. Each painting has a brief description plus links to the artist’s biography and the work’s location in the gallery. A Focus Painting each month takes an in-depth view of one particular work.
