What I rather miss here are themes with portfolios for artists/painters and their artwork.

Normal portfolios (as for designers) are not the right: have often too small portfolio areas.

Photo portfolios (as for photographers) are not the right: have often only lightbox effect on the image thumbnails.

What I, as an artist (paintings), would like to have, is a wordpress theme with a huge portfolio area in that way, that each click on an image thumbnail, should lead to a description page, with some zoom function (is possible with jQuery) of the artwork, for example.

Like this gallery function for example: http://wptheme5.mipdesign.com/?page_id=206 But the portfolio isn’t made for many (!) artworks ;-)

It’s hard for me to describe this with my bad English, sorry, but perhaps somebody understand :-)

What you are looking for I believe is a theme that has a portfolio section – shows thumbs that when clicked lead to what is also known as a client case study page – it shows images of pages on the clients site which when clicked zoom showing a larger image using jquery.

I’m creating a website for a client that does EXACTLY what you are talking about right now – it’s very common.

Here is an example of how I interpreted your message:

This is the “portfolio” page (click an image to get more details): http://sunrisedesign.com/portfolio/

This is the case study “description” page (this is what you get for more details – thumbs can be clicked to see larger images): http://sunrisedesign.com/portfolio/kuhns-jewelers

I would of thought there was quite a few on here like this but I haven’t looked myself – but I agree if there are not any then there needs to be.

I for one will make sure I release a HTML template like this.

Thanks for the input and feedback / suggestions.

I am working on a wordpress theme that is designed with photographers/artists/painters and everyone else in mind.

Thanks a lot! I’m curious about it :-)

For me as an artist/painter is important, to show my clients a zoom or detailed view of the artwork, not just a bigger image when clicking on the small one.

There are nice possibilites to do this with jQuery:



Let me know, if you have something like that for me :-) Thanks to all!

I’ve made again several acrylic paintings, which are waiting to be sold, guys :-D

So I urgently need a good, clean theme (WP preferred) with zoom jQuery, no shop, just to show the artworks, with the possibility to show a description to each artwork, a detailed/zoomed view.

Most themes here are dimensioned for a small portfolio, the others only for showing photos, with no description page to each and zoom/detailed views of the artworks.


The WP theme needs to be dimensioned for a big portfolio for paintings in different categories. But each needs it’s own description page and view(s).

Guys, don’t let me alone ;-) .... I count on you, that I can show my artwork at the latest until Christmas with my new Wordpress theme from you.

You are all the best, I know it – my moneybag, too :-P

Have a nice week, Christina
