AHDS Visual Arts has announced the addition of works from fineart.ac.uk to its growing visual arts digital catalogue. Fineart.ac.uk, the National Fine Art Education Digital Collection, is a prototype for a national Web-based collection of work by staff and students of UK higher education institutions who have made a significant contribution to UK fine art education through practice. It includes works by many important figures in British art such as Richard Hamilton, Bridget Riley, Barbara Hepworth and Tracy Emin.

The collection contains around 200 digital images and associated curatorial information, drawn from paintings, sculptures, prints and drawings from the mid-19th century to the present day. More than 150 artists-practitioners who studied or taught at degree (or equivalent) level in schools of art are represented. AHDS Visual Arts now provides c. 25,000 digital images for use in research, learning and teaching.
