Visual Arts Data Service (VADS)

Visual Arts Data Service (VADS) is an online resource for visual arts. In August 2014, its collections of visual art comprised over 100.000 freely available images. These come from various periods in history and from various periods of the world. Many different types of visual arts are represented, such as paintings, stained glass, textiles, banners, posters, and fashion.

Basic and advanced search are available. In addition, images can be browsed according to theme (applied arts, architecture, design, fine art, and media) or according to collection (58 collections were available in August 2014). Each image is accompanied by a detailed record, and can be downloaded in JPEG format.

The project is based at the University for the Creative Arts.
