Art.sy Online Arts Database

Art.sy is a new way to discover art you’ll love, featuring work from leading galleries, museums and private collections around the world.

Art.sy is powered by The Art Genome Project, an ongoing study of the characteristics that distinguish and connect works of art. Art.sy evaluates artworks across 800+ characteristics (we call them genes)—such as art-historical movements, subject matter, and formal qualities—to create a powerful search experience that reflects the multifaceted aspects of works of art.

One interesting option is to view works of art in a room, as shown above. This gives a vivid sense of size and scale. Art.sy is still in beta testing, and available only after requesting invitation.
