My own favorite Art History resource on the Web

The Kimbell Art Museum has a lovely web presence, you can view their collection and read the history of each painting.~Jube

Dr. Witcombe also has a link to Carol Jackson-Gerten's site which is magnificent in its scope, and in the quality of the scans. She has an interesting section re. the Crusades, as chronicled through art.
