Art Links:

"Artsy features the world’s leading galleries, museum collections, foundations, artist estates, art fairs, and benefit auctions, all in one place. Our growing database of 800,000 images of art, architecture, and design by 80,000 artists spans historical, modern, and contemporary works, and includes the largest online database of contemporary art. Artsy is used by art lovers, museum-goers, patrons, collectors, students, and educators to discover, learn about, and collect art."

What I particularly like about this site is that they have insanely good pictures -- the zoom is phenomenal!

Let's look at a particular example: Mary Magdalene as Melancholy by Artemisia Gentileschi (which is the painting that made me stumble across this site in the first place). The quality of the zoom in the pictures I was able to upload is not even comparable, so go to the site and enjoy!
