|I had a number of reasons for putting this site on the net. One was that I
wanted to share information about some of the good artists and works of art I have
discovered with others who might not be familiar with them. For that reason I have
placed more emphasis on some of the lesser-known artists (and as a matter of justice
to publicize what should be more widely recognized but isn't). Another is that in
my discussions of artistic matters on the net it is often difficult for me to refer
to a particular painting, sculpture, or song and be well-understood because those with
whom I am communicating may not know what particular works I am talking about. It is
for this reason as much as anything that I included a Rogue's
Gallery of Bad Art as well as a collection of Nazi and Soviet Art
along with the rest. As time goes on I will be adding more critiques, commentary,
biographical information and more images of artworks and digitized recordings of music.
I expect this to be a long process and I'll probably never be truly finished with this
little corner of the web, so keep on checking here for new stuff from time to time.|
For most of the listed artists there are lots of examples available on attached pages. Generally I have provided a sample of the work of each one to help give you an idea of whether you want to explore further by clicking on the artist's picture. In each case, the sample thumbnail is available on the page within.
Smaller collections for other painters of note including Hughes, Moore, Gardner, Dicksee, Hunt, Draper, Hanker, Perugini, Raphael, and Peale.
