One reason the Web has become such an intrinsic part of our lives is that it is not simply a repository of text information. Many times, when you go online to search for something, it’s not words that you’re looking for. Here are three resources that can help you find images.
You can search all the holdings at the National Gallery in Washington, D.C., pictured at left, at the museum’s Web site. The collection includes both centuries-old and contemporary European and American paintings, photographs, sculptures and examples of the decorative arts.
A University of Washington database provides images of cities and buildings from various time periods. Search by country, city, style, title, architect, date of construction and other criteria.
In collaboration with various museums, Tufts University offers the Art & Archeology Browser, a database of images and descriptions of coins, vases, sculptures, archeological sites, gems, and buildings.
