Eugène Delacroix, Liberty Leading the People (1830)
Imagine a place where you could look for all the things related to art on a simple and practical way. A place where you could quickly get information about any artistic movement spending less than 2 minutes. A place where, beyond the text, you can see the spoil of each artist -- if this kind of thing can be found over the internet. That's what The Art Browserconcerns about: on the basis of the Wikipedia concept, it's a new art encyclopedia which assembles hundreds of artists. Easy to be used and with a clean aspect, it allies the artcyclopedia.com categories and the art.com images.
The artistic movements are ordered by century, and there are the information about each artist -- that's the strength of this website: we never get lost in the middle of all that information. Each movement has a brief explanation of its characteristics, as much as each artist. But, if you want to know more, there are direct links to Wikipedia and other websites. Then, the whole found images of each artist are put there (only Picasso has more than 500 high-quality images), since the most know images until the small illustrations and cover magazines. Everything can be found.
There are hundreds of artists that can be scrutinized at this website. There is Matisse, Monet, Van Gogh, Dali and others less known by the audience: from Andrea Pisano, Simone Martini and Pietro Cavallini to Jacob Lawrence, Romare Bearden and Ellis Wilson. Everything you can think about between Pre-renaissance and nowadays can be found here, as far as a click.
