Carol Gerten's Fine Art
Carol is very famous. She wanted to give something to the world, and this goal is achieved in a way she probably did not dream of herself.

She started 1996 and is still scanning, c. 6,000 scans to date. She got 12+ mirrors all over the world, and some had to shut down due to 50,000+ hits per day! This is proof that there is a huge demand for Fine Art on the net. Thank you, Carol!
  

2 thumbs from Carol

If you are looking for ancient art, you can't go wrong with her. She has got biographical notes for most painters and provides an index and thumbnails for ease of research.

Carol loves Italian Renaissance painters. You'll find some you never heard of. She is not particularly fond of Modern Art. You will find Picasso, but only some blue and pink stuff. You won't find Beckmann at all.

Mark Harden's Artchive
Mark has a very interesting image map. There is a museum site with an exhibition featuring Rembrandt, kind of one man show.

a thumb from Mark
Beckmann, Afternoon

Another features the black paintings of Goya and simulates a real building. You wander from room to room, see the paintings hanging on the wall.

A third the triptych "Departure" of Max Beckmann, Museum of Modern Art, NY, using frames for the analysis of a complex painting.

Then there is the sculpture garden, reviews of Fine Art CD-ROMs, interesting links (look for Eyes on Art!) and other articles.

And finally there is the artchive proper. You can order all images on CD-ROM, becoming a patron of the site. Mark does this for some time, too, and has got some 2 or 3 thousand scans. He even lectures on scanning.

Mark is interested in Modern Art. He is particularly fond of Beckmann, has a long list of Picassos, and you find even very new art there, Polke, Luepertz, Baselitz, Beuys, to name some (all German!).

He features a framed list with artist's names at left, a list of text links to works at right. It is often tedious to look for a specific work. Take Picasso or Cezanne with lots of works listed, you won't find easily what you look for.

When I complained to him, he told me another address without the other features. Instead you get a simple table with names, listed alphabetically, by date and scan date.

If you click a name, you get thumbs to choose from. There is text sometimes, or a review, and as a rule the data is quite correct and complete. Thank you, Mark! I enjoyed your work very much, you helped me a lot!

Deutsches Historisches Museum
German Historical Museum

This site is well done, multi lingual also, by somebody really believing in the internet. They have a list frequented by German art historians. If you need to identify an artist or have other questions related to art, post to the list Deutsche Museumsliste.

Art.net
They call themselves A virtual space where artists join together in sharing their art with others on the Internet. Here I found Anne Harris and Jochen Brennecke.

Brennecke, Influence

Strictly non commercial, an artist's gallery, with poets, musicians and so on, from the old days of the internet. Interesting for artists, no ads, hence not free.

Eyes on Art
From the link list of Harden: A program for students of art, if I am correct, investigates the question: How to educate art, as well aesthetically as practically. I played a while with it and enjoyed it greatly. If you want to get acquainted and increase joy with art, try it.

eBLAST : Encyclopædia Britannica's Internet Guide
This is a good start to explore the world of art on the web.

Art, Design and Visual Thinking
From the link list of  eBLAST : Encyclopædia Britannica's Internet Guide. Great online course on visual elements (and more). Worth to be read from start to end, interesting for the novice and the expert alike. Lots of excellent illustrations (> 30 MB in total). If you plan to read from outside the US, being charged for online time, you'd better get yourself Offline Explorer, download the whole site to your local HD (will take some time, choose cheap rate period) and browse offline (which is more enjoyable anyhow as pictures are loaded in no time).

Jim's Fine Art Collection
Thus speeks Jim:

Welcome to Jim's Fine Art Collection. It is my hope to provide quality scans of works from a wide array of painters and sculptors, from Europe to the Americas, and from Africa to Australia and Asia. Included are works from pre-historic cave paintings to contemporary artists. A little something for everyone, you might say. At last count, 4,539 works from 351 artists are in the collection. More than 3,500 remain to be added, as Ol' Jim finds available free time between working and sleeping.

ArtNet®
is a New York based firm gathering everything connected with the art field. So there are museums, galleries, artists, old art, new art, antiquities, fairs, auctions, exhibitions, organisations, magazines etc.

It was here that I realized: an auction catalogue does not give more information as can be given here. So why not try selling art via internet?

Last time I visited the fee was $ 2.000 per annum for galleries. I found this site via a gallery in my neighbourhood (Teutloff, Bielefeld), showing US-media artist Lynn Hershman with homepage.
