J. Paul Getty Museum at The Getty Center, Los Angeles

This web site demonstrates the future of how museums and their surrounding communities can come together to create an exciting learning environment. Unlike most museums, the Getty never lacks funding. As a result, the J. Paul Getty Museum and its web site are a great example of vision and taste.

The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco

The unique feature of this web site is the vast amount of art available for viewing. Most museums have only a small portion of their collections online--this site has higher aspirations. At present, 50% of its collection is available to the public, and its goal is to get 100% available in the future!

An extremely comprehensive site that has compiled an index of every artist represented at hundreds of museum sites, image archives, and other online resources. Artcyclopedia now has 1200 arts sites, and offers more than 32,000 links to an estimated 100,000 works by 7,500 renowned artists. You can perform searches by artist name, title, of a work of art, art museum, movement, medium, and more!


This web site is described as a "visual arts dictionary." It includes 3,100 definitions for art terminology. It also contains illustrations, pronunciations and quotes. We believe this is one of the best sites of its kind on the Internet.

Giorgio Vasari's 'The Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors and Architects'

Giorgio Vasari (1511-74) is credited with writing the first contemporary biographies of some of the most important artists of the Italian Renaissance including Brunelleschi, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Leonardo da Vinci. In addition to providing quoted excerpts from the text, the site also offers examples of each artist's work.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Timeline of Art History

This is probably the best researched art site available on the Internet today. The Met describes their site as: "The Timeline of Art History is a chronological, geographical, and thematic exploration of the history of art from around the world, as illustrated especially by the Metropolitan Museum of Art's collection. The Museum's curatorial, conservation, and education staff—perhaps the largest single core of art experts anywhere in the world—research and write the Timeline, which is an invaluable reference and research tool for students, educators, scholars, and anyone interested in the study of art history and related subjects. First launched in 2000, the Timeline now extends from prehistory to 1600 A.D., and will continue to expand in scope and depth. The Timeline will span art history up to the present day by the fall of 2004."
