Louis Dali

Where can I find high quality pictures of famous art online?

Hey everyone, I've been wondering if anybody knows a good website for viewing famous art work.
I was never very big into viewing art, but I took an art history class at my university just on a whim, and I've been loving it! I wanted to put some famous paintings as the background on my computer, but google images and bing aren't helping much.
My computers size is 1440px by 900px. I love a lot of paintings, some of my favorite artists are: Monet, Dali, Poussin, Rubens, Rembrandt , Jacques-Louis David, Watteau, Boucher, Hogarth, Gericault, Delacroix, Picasso, Manet, Renoir, Van Gogh, Matisse, Pollock, Warhol, and Botticelli.

Woah, sorry about that folks, kind of went over the top a little. I also love traditional japanese art work like Katsushika Hokusai's "36 views of Mount Fuji."

Any help at all would be nice, thank you so much!

The website I always start with is

http://www.artcyclopedia.com/ -- It has links to many sites. Just enter the name of the artist you are interested in. It pulls up a list of links to museums and image archives.

Unfortunately, the quality of the images provided vary. When you're going to a museum site you never know if you're getting some zoomable, high resolution scan (YAY!!) or a 3 foot painting squashed to a two inch image (Boo!!).

The image archive sites are at least consistent. You can find the links to them from artcyclopedia, but here are some of the sites with good images so you'll recognize them when you see them on artcyclopedia:

Art Renewal Center -- http://www.artrenewal.org/index.php
Humanities Web --- http://www.humanitiesweb.org
Olga's Gallery -- http://www.abcgallery.com
Web Gallery of Art -- http://www.wga.hu/
The Athenaeum -- http://www.the-athenaeum.org/ (Pictures are usually pretty good and this site has more Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, etc images than any other site on the web.)

You mentioned van Gogh. There's one site -- and one site only -- that actually has every single van Gogh painting. It's
The Vincent van Gogh Gallery -- http://www.vggallery.com/

Anything on artcyclopedia that says "Masterscan" on it is going to be an excellent image

My recommendation to you is that you go over to http://www.artcyclopedia.com/ and have fun exploring!!
