Web Gallery of Art


I could spend weeks on this site.

The Web Gallery of Art is a virtual museum and searchable database of European painting and sculpture of the Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods (1100-1800), currently containing over 12,400 reproductions. Commentaries on pictures, biographies of artists are available.

Pictured above is Pieter Bruegel’s Triumph of Death, c 1562.

For as long as anyone can remember, dogs have not only been man’s best friend, but they also been man’s best meal.
