All of them.  "Today" isn't a specific word.

Is'nt "today" the translation of the french word "aujourd'hui" ?

That narrows it down to a couple thousand paintings.

Batgirl is wrong about today not being specific since it means the current day.  What is meant is that you always say "Added today" even though it'll still say "Added today" 1,000 years from now.  When someone sees the ones you added 3 weeks ago, they see it as added the same day they're looking at it.  A date, like "Added September 31st 2012" would be more precise.  It really doesn't matter, nor does saying when you added it.

Most of the people on this site won't know what aujourd'hui is... Les plupart des gens ne parlent pas le français.
