ODID Painting Features in BBC Project to Put All UK's Public Paintings Online
A painting that hangs in ODID's doctoral student area features in a BBC project to put all the UK's 212,000 oil paintings held in public collections online.
'Blossom Trees' was painted by Sarah T. Jarvis in 1965.
In total, 3,217 venues across the UK have participated in the Your paintings Project, which is a partnership between the Public Catalogue Foundation and the BBC and was completed last week after 10 years.
The ODID painting can be viewed on the Your Paintings website.
