Art and Photography

Artcyclopedia
– Our mission is to become the definitive and most effective guide to museum-quality fine art on the Internet:
definitive: We have compiled a comprehensive index of every artist represented at hundreds of museum sites, image archives, and other online resources. We have started out by covering the biggest and best sites around, and have links for most well-known artists to keep you surfing for hours. Update January/2006: We have now indexed over 2,300 art sites, and offer over 95,000 links to an estimated 180,000 artworks by 8,200 renowned artists.
most effective: The Artcyclopedia’s custom search engine is already the fastest way to search the Net for information about fine artists. Period.
museum-quality: There are scads of artists with home pages on the Web, many of whom are extremely talented. But we can’t list every site, and we really don’t want to set ourselves up as arbiters of who produces “quality” art and who doesn’t – making such a judgment is impossible over the Internet in any case. We feel that fairest approach is to rely on the worldwide network of museum professionals to make that call. So our general policy is, if an artist is in an arts museum collection, then he or she is qualified to be listed in our database.

Art Renewal
– You have just entered the largest on-line Museum on the internet. A work in progress, steadily expanding with thousands of high quality images of the greatest paintings and sculpture in history, the Art Renewal Center is building an encyclopedic collection of essays, biographies and articles by top scholars in the field.
ARC is the Eye of the Storm, at the core, hub and center of a major cultural shift in the art world. With a growing body of experts, we are setting standards to become ARC Approved™ for artists, art schools, systems of training, museum exhibitions and historical scholarship, to bring guidance, direction, goals and reality to an art establishment that has been sailing rudderless for nearly a hundred years.
Additionally, the Art Renewal Center is a non-profit educational organization committed to reviving standards of craftsmanship and excellence. Only by gaining a full command of the skills of the past masters can we create the masters of tomorrow. This is a step forward for our culture. Experimentation and creativity can only succeed and prosper when built on a solid foundation of past accomplishments, with the tools which empower artists to realize their visions.
Nothing has been more restricting and debilitating than the theories of modernism, which eliminated these tools, along with the skills to employ them. We are providing a forum for artists, scholars, collectors and the public to appreciate great art, and to recognize that they’re not alone in their suspicions about the emptiness of modern and postmodern art. These suspicions are fully justified by the overwhelming body of evidence and historical facts.
To create the largest on-line Museum on the internet, with hundreds of thousands of oversized high quality images of all the known works of the greatest painters and sculptors in human history, cross referenced to the largest encyclopedic online art reference library of historical texts, essays, biographies and articles. To promote a return of training, standards and excellence in the visual arts. To provide responsible views opposing those of the current art establishment when warranted, especially as expressed in critiques of current art exhibitions, and in aesthetic philosophy. To disseminate the rich artistic heritage of 2500 years of accumulated knowledge in creating traditional, realistic images touching upon universal and timeless themes. To advance the understanding that Great Art begins with great themes and expresses them poetically through mastery of all aspects of technique. To repudiate the idea that development in art requires destruction of boundaries and standards, pointless emphasis on ‘newness,’ or pursuit of the bizarre and ugly as ends in themselves, and to expose as artistic fraud those works conceived only to elicit outrage. To provide a technical and historical resource for artistic information, including referrals to experts. To provide a forum for dialogue and exchange of expert information among educators scholars, curators, collectors and artists. To promote scholarship and research on the artists of the past and the rediscovery and preservation of their techniques and methods. To establish basic visual literacy standards across the world. Drawing must be introduced as part of the core curricula in K-12 and developed progressively until high school and beyond. To provide impetus for the reestablishment of high standards of performance in the visual arts of painting, drawing, and sculpture, and to promote the concept of recognizable quality as a primary criterion for the judgment of Fine Art. To offer a platform for discussion – both scholarly and informal – on art history, aesthetics, technical considerations, art education and other related issues, and to maintain honesty and frankness in our interaction with everyone, regardless of predisposition.

Earth Tones Images
– Welcome to Earth Tones Images!
We’ve been having quite a bit of snow here in Colorado making for great winter opportunities but spring is finally creeping in. Soon we’ll be crawling around looking for great flower images and catching torrential streams full of run-off from all the snow. I have added a ‘Recent’ gallery for things I’ve been doing lately so take a look. Thanks to all of you who’ve supported Earth Tones Images this past year. Your comments have been great and I appreciate them all. Keep ’em coming in 2008 and check back to see what’s new!
Earth Tones Images is Colorado-based photographer John Dwyer. I have been a professional historian spending a great deal of time researching in interesting places, always with my camera in tow. I still travel, although not as frequently in my current career. Living in Colorado provides ample opportunity for beautiful images and I look forward to the chances I get.
I especially enjoy photographing landscapes and wildlife. I’m also interested in photographing historical subjects and meteorological phenomena. As a photographer, I love being out in nature, and then finding ways of communicating the scene through the camera. As a viewer of my images, I hope the images can give you the sense of being there.
The photos have been captured from many places in the U.S., Canada, the British Isles and New Zealand. There are so many very fine photographers with stunning web sites so thank you for taking time to view this one.

ex entropy fractal designs
– The name ex entropy can be loosely interpreted to mean “out of chaos”, or “from disorder”. It is a reference to chaos theory and the mathematics of complexity, the realm of mathematical and physical reality in which reside fractal geometry and the fractal universe. The geometry of fractals underlies the natural world, and the inherent beauty of the patterns and structures seen in fractals are evocative of those found in nature – in, for example, the characteristically self-similar patterns and forms of leaves and flowers, snowflakes, mountains, clouds, and river networks.
In recent years, due to advances in computer technology, it has become possible to give visual expression to these previously unseen, infinitely complex and beautiful mathematical entities. Powerful software such as Ultra Fractal has made it possible to create images from fractal formulae, applying coloring and other mathematical algorithms to the underlying fractal forms to create the work seen in the growing field of fractal art. A good starting point to further explore fractals and fractal art is the Infinite Fractal Loop.
For me, fractal images are the point where art and science meet, the perfect synthesis of the two which had previously eluded me.

Fotostil
– Dear friends,
Fotostil.de is a small private gallery, devoted to still life which is one of the most interesting genres of photography. Here you can exhibit your own works in this genre,take part in the discussion and exchange your experience. In the section “INFO” you can find detailed information about this gallery, its rules and a procedure of registration.

fractalus
– Once upon a time, a fractal artist put up a web site.
Years ago, this web site started out as a small gallery and personal site for just one person. But it’s grown considerably since then, both in the amount of content hosted and the number of visitors who come to see it. We’re glad you came to visit, and we’re a also little bit shocked that you actually visited this page, because almost nobody does.
fractalus.com exists to showcase fractal art, provide information about fractals, and promote fractals in general. We (the artists who build and maintain this site) want to show you our very best; we create this art because we love to do it.

Freeman Patterson
– Every artist is, first of all, a craftperson thoroughly knowledgeable about the materials, tools, and techniques of his or her particular medium and skilled in using many of them.
However, in my view, no amount of technical knowledge and competence is, of itself, sufficient to make a craftperson into an artist. That requires caring — passionate caring about ultimate things. For me there is a close connection between art and religion in the sense that both are concerned about questions of meaning — if not about the meaning of existence generally, then certainly about the meaning of one’s individual life and how a person relates to his or her total community/environment. This is not to say that every work of art is or should be a heavily profound statement, indeed many may be very light-hearted, but rather that consciously and unconsciously an artist engaged in serious work is always raising or dealing with the question: “What really matters?”

Galleria Silecchia
– Galleria Silecchia of Sarasota, Florida, USA, invites you to enjoy the visual experience of our online gallery.

James Nicholls Photography
– My life has been devoted to exploring and observing the sacred and the profane in ordinary lives and places, in places of conflict and calm. I find these images everywhere – in Bosnia, the Holy Land, and Sudan, a man rushing along the Seine, a quiet grove of trees along a highway, a staircase ascending to the heavens, a narrow opening of a doorway suggesting more, or water and sky as a place of joining. These images encourage wonder and challenge our carefully protected claims to space and time. Light has been the common element for me. I have been a student of poetry, philosophy, psychology, music and theology all my life. It is the light of the sun, of understanding, inner glow, and connection. I believe that the search is part of our nature and so we go in search of what is beyond. There is the mystery of the search and there is the hope of connection. Ultimately, the images, food for our travel, will find a home in those who welcome them.
James Nicholls

Louvre Museum
– The principle responsibility of the Louvre is to conserve, protect, restore, and develop France’s national art treasures, from the early royal collections to the most recent acquisitions. In carrying out this task, the museum’s scientific and academic staff displays steadfast commitment and universally recognized professionalism.
The priceless artworks housed in the Louvre are held for the benefit of present and future generations. Hence the vital importance of the museum’s mission to make these works available to the greatest number of people possible, from France and all over the world. To do this, it is our job to ensure that every visitor enjoys the best facilities possible. But it is also essential to promote cultural access: to do as much as we can to help each visitor to approach, understand, and enjoy the works they have come to see. With this in mind, we are committed to extend the range of information available at the Louvre in languages other than French, to further develop the museum’s wide range of educational resources and activities, and to make our buildings and collections more easily accessible—in every sense—to people with disabilities and to new audiences.

Love-Peace-Happiness
– “My greatest desire is to offer my whole heart, soul, mind and strength to honor and worship God and to be mightily used to declare his glory through my paintings.”
Satoshi Matsuyama
I compose my image putting them together with 300 of photographs which was taken by myself with digital camera, and painting many things there on my mac with Wacom tablet pens.
Each data on Photoshop CS3 is 30 to 60GB, when I’m working with them on my Mac driving controlled by SoftRaid 3.51 with 6 disks of ultra 320 SCSI array.
Printed more clear than the photography by 44 inches with “Digital Fine Arts Prints”, the model developed for “Fine Art”, on pure canvases.
My large formatted over 80 inches long printable .psb data (can not in tiff) is almost 5 to 7GB in 350 ppi resolution each works.
These images can not possibly be viewed on a computer screen.
It is imperative that these works be displayed on the walls of real galleries around the world, for all to see.
To truly understand the messages from our Creator these works must be viewed with the naked eye.
I think that If there is even an intention referred to as wanting to express,it will fulfill a Photoshop in the form which is in sight as a “Digital Fine Arts Prints”
That is a great gift for us living in today, no need to graduate art courage or education of photo technique.
We can make the impossible dream possible by this great digital technology.
I think that the possibility of this wonderful technology is the right currently equally gifted to all the people in the world, every tribe and tongue and people and nation, for their peace and happiness.

Magnum Photos
– “Magnum is a community of thought, a shared human quality, a curiosity about what is going on in the world, a respect for what is going on and a desire to transcribe it visually.”
Henri Cartier-Bresson
Magnum Photos is a photographic co-operative of great diversity and distinction owned by its photographer-members. With powerful individual vision, Magnum photographers chronicle the world and interpret its peoples, events, issues and personalities. Through its four editorial offices in New York, London, Paris and Tokyo, and a network of fifteen sub-agents, Magnum Photos provides photographs to the press, publishers, advertising, television, galleries and museums across the world.
The Magnum Photos library is a living archive updated daily with new work from across the globe. The library houses all the work produced by Magnum photographers and some special collections by non-members. There are approximately one million photographs in both print and transparency in the physical library, with 350,000 images available online.
Within the library, most of the major world events and personalities from the Spanish Civil War to the present day are covered. There are constantly updated profiles on most countries of the world, covering industry, society and people, places of interest, politics and news events, disasters and conflict. The Magnum Photos library reflects all aspects of life throughout the world and the unparalleled sense of vision, imagination and brilliance of the greatest collective of documentary photographers. In short, when you picture an iconic image, but can’t think who took it or where it can be found, it probably came from Magnum.

Metropolitan Museum of Art
– The Collection Database is a searchable database of artworks and related materials from the permanent collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. An individual database record includes information about an object as well as images, when available. The Museum’s curators have selected several works of note within the collection Database as Highlights of the collection.
Due to the extremely large number of objects in the Museum’s permanent collection, not all artworks are currently available in the collection Database. Furthermore, information contained in the database records is, in some cases, incomplete, and all information is subject to change according to ongoing research and new acquisitions.

Michael Fatali
– “Early in my life I turned to the motherhood of nature for my personal and spiritual growth. This relationship with the natural world has been my lifeblood. I am drawn to places of mystery where I feel at peace with the power of the Earth’s spirit.
Over the years, I have learned to use my photography as a voice for the gospel of nature. It is my goal and mission to communicate the mysterious connections we all share with this land having chosen to be a portrait photographer of God’s creations. I will continue to practice ways that bring us a little closer to the spirit of nature.”

Robert Body Photography
– This website is about my pictures. Since 1997 i took my camera canoeing, skiing, hiking, roadtrips near and far… and sometimes i headed outdoors just to take pictures

Roi James
– I’ve spent several years building a spiritual home within me that would nurture
a belief in myself as an artist, a space that would allow for the materialization
of my hopes, dreams, and aspirations. These hopes and dreams have been so
delicate yet resilient. Looking back on my life I am utterly amazed that they
not only survived the most trying of times but grew and are now materializing
before my eyes.
The fulfillment of these hopes and dreams has little to do with whether I have the
power to carry them out and more to do with my willingness to receive them, to
let them fill that space that has always been there for them alone. That means
being willing to experience the joy and the pain of living the dream.
My painting is part of the realization of these dreams. Creating a painting is about
communicating what is in my heart more than anything else. Every painting involves
vulnerability and risk, and my willingness to release what is within me. When I am
open to creating without condition or expectation, I render the most satisfying and
fulfilling paintings.
I am careful with my subject matter. Realizing that what I paint is what is true or
becomes true for me, I choose to paint what supports the realization of my hopes
and dreams. Each painting is an affirmation to my spirit, an icon to remind me of
what it is I strive for, of what I want to release, and the freedom which is available
to me every moment of every day if I’m willing to accept it. My challenge has
always been to accept this grace, and I find myself more able to do so many
times throughout each day of my life. It is always available and it is always
my choice.
Roi James

Shami Kanekar
– Raised amongst the bright colors and intricate fabrics of life in India, memories of unusual color combinations, texture and design drive my creative process. I have had no formal education in art. I have studied art independently throughout my life, reading books on traditional Indian art and sculpture, and modeling my designs after them. My love of nature, particularly of plants and flowers, strongly influenced my creativity. I create stylized floral patterns, animals and abstracts, using watercolor and pen, and more recently, oil pastels.

Silk Artist
– Paintings on Silk by Leonard Thompson. Stunning silk painting and batik for connoisseurs of fine art”. – Today silk painting is an extremely popular art form but it is almost as old as the discovery of silk itself. With modern dyes and paints the design possibilities are limitless. Using a medium-weight habutai silk, Pébéo Setasilk iron-fixed silk paints, clear water solvent gutta and in some paintings batik wax as the resist, I have developed a technique that hides the resist lines. The finished pictures are carefully stretched and mounted on acid-free board and then framed for exhibition.

The Eternal Diogenes
– Verdirosi is an Italian artist and poet whose paintings and poetry are a metaphysical argument, a treasure trove full of painted dreams and unusual imaginations

The Golden Wood Studio
– The Golden Wood is my favorite painting from The Twelve Dancing Princesses and was the inspiration for the name of my studio. To me the image embodies the world of the fairy tale in all its magical richness, reflecting back to us the truth of our inner landscapes. It depicts a journey, a rite-of-passage into adulthood. Magical wishes, Ruth Sanderson

Zenith Gallery
– Since opening our doors in 1978, Zenith has established deep roots in the nation’s capital and with artists and collectors across America. And, throughout our history we’ve pushed boundaries and broken ground with an ever-changing selection of paintings, sculpture, neon, photographs, tapestries and mixed-media pieces that stimulate, engage and have profoundly enhanced our clients’ residential, corporate and public-space environments.
Long at the forefront of the Washington arts scene, we seek out and feature exceptional artists at varying stages of their careers. Many have been with us for 30 years and are now well-known and established, while others are young bright lights on the horizon.
