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
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
Have a nice week, Christina
