Artists Online

Artists are among the more eccentric characters in history. Van Gogh cut a piece of his ear off, Michelangelo spent countless hours on his back to perfect the Sistine Chapel, and Andy Warhol certainly had his own 15 minutes of fame with his depictions of ordinary soup cans.

While not all art genres solicit the intellectual curiosity of everyone (the semi-erotic obliques of Picasso tend to draw a different audience than the British landscapes of Joseph Turner), studying art and artistic periods provides great insight to the political, social and intellectual happenings of historical eras.

These resources offer more information on the individual people, works and periods in the art world.

  • The Artists
    This sleek site focuses on biographies of 20th century artists, conveniently sorted alphabetically and by artistic movement-everything from Dada to Futurism.

  • Web Gallery of Art
    For those looking for European artist information, the brush stops here. This is an excellent and exhaustive reference guide to almost 700 years of European painting, focusing on the Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods. More than 8,000 paintings are available for viewing. The site also offers artist biographies and introductory historical essays.




  • Brain Juice
    This biographical site, written mainly by students, offers information on artists, authors and historical figures. The art section is somewhat limited (only addresses the more well-known painters), but the information itself is solid.

  • American Painting
    This site from the National Gallery of Art shows tours of artists including Mary Cassatt and John Singleton Copley. There are also in-depth studies of several artists.

  • AskArt
    If the above site whets your interest in American art, this database offers biographies of 25,000 artists.

  • Olga's Gallery
    If there's no major art museum near you, spend some time at this virtual gallery. This rather extensive collection of images and information is sorted by artist, country and movement.

  • Art Quiz
    How well do you know art history? Can you tell a Da Vinci from a Degas? A Cassat from a Kandinsky? After brushing up on your art history with the above resources, come to this site to test your knowledge on different artists and art movements.

To research more creative masters, visit PeopleSpot's Artists page. At MuseumSpot, you'll find links to hundreds of art museums and exhibits.
