Bespoke software zooms Victoria Fine Art into action
After many months of work, we’ve launched a brand new website for Victoria Fine Art to be the best for buyers of traditional and contemporary Fine Art in the UK - possibly the whole world!
Utilising jQuery and PHP for frontend and backend technologies we developed our own bespoke extension to the eZ Publish Content Management System (CMS) that implements a 'deep zoom' technique making it possible for visitors to zoom in on pictures to explore details, textures and brushwork like never before.
By customising eZ Find we’ve harnessed the powerful Apache Solr search engine to make it possible for art lovers to search for pictures by artist, title and categories of subject matter, size, period and price bracket.
The powerful new content management system makes it possible to curate artworks by artist, theme, period, country of origin, style - even size!
Victoria Fine Art manager, Jonathan Roberts says:
"We can’t wait to display our fabulous collection of literally thousands of beautiful, covetable paintings - many of them never before seen on the internet."
The elegant design work was provided by Sally Davidson, and our EAB Developer team led by Andy Caiger provided the bespoke software.
We are incredibly proud of this website.
