Artcyclopedia is exactly what the name says it is. It is an encyclopedia dedicated strictly to art. There are several ways to navigate – by the artist’s name, the artwork’s name, museum name or location. You can also navigate by scrolling down to the Browse By section, where you can browse by name, medium, subject, nationality, women artists, or art movements.

On the main page you’ll find one featured article (when I was there it was on Rogier van der Weyden), the ten most popular artists of the previous month, and three featured slideshows. The article on Rogier van der Weyden was very informative and includes a zoom-able scan of The Descent from the Cross. I also would highly recommend that you check out the slide show on Women Artists of the Renaissance. This was very interesting to learn about, considering that women were expected to marry and have children rather than work. Yet these women managed to become marvelous painters in spite of the society they were living in.


Some of them even had members of royalty as patrons!

On the left menu, you can find sections like: Top 30 Artists, Articles, Art News, Art Museums Worldwide, Masterpieces, and Galleries. I recommend you check out the Masterpieces section because you’ll find high quality scans (basically the best image version on the web of that paining) of famous masterpieces.
