Here's a site I made for browsing Art history and different artists associated with movements. Sort of a mash up of sources. Hope you like it.

Wow, this is really neat! I'm forwarding to my art history grad student friends.

I failed Art History I in college... twice. If I had access to this in 2004 I might have graduated from college (but probably not; if you put two of those paintings next to each other I still can't even guess what periods they're from).

My brother is teaches college art courses and studied a lot of art history in his student days and sent me an email thanking me for turning him on to this and saying he thought it would be useful to him preparing for classes (so I hope you keep it up!). You really outdid yourself finding quality images and a lot of them!

Great site. Very organized, intuitive and elegant.

Not to bash on some great work, but was this previously posted by you? I'm guessing it was re-worked, because it's very much more than just picasso, matisse, degas, and okeefe.

Eh, you were young and naive. Things changed and the site is improved. Not many browse the archives, so I think you're OK.

Seriously, if we had caught this at the time this would be "you are so banned" territory.

As it is, highlighting it as a FPP is pretty dodgy (as in, it's going to highlight the self-link and possibly make a thing about it) so I'm just noting this here in case it becomes a thing.
