My title may not capture what I meant very well... Hopefully the text below does. Let me know if it doesn't!

I really enjoy art, but as far as I know, there aren't any streamlined services that allow people to explore it thoroughly and efficiently.

In other words, are there any internet-based art galleries? I'd really like a site that compiles relevant information (style(s) used, info about the artist, etc) on a piece-by-piece basis.

Wikipedia is alright, but it tends to have more extraneous information and the focus is more on text rather than the art itself.


jafle:

The closest thing I could find would be something like this:

http://www.wikiart.org/

I hope it's the sort of thing you were after! Seems to have quite a bit of detail about style, materials etc. Most of the pieces I've looked at have had a decent description/background included as well! Hope it helps :)
