    Finding Fine Art

    May 7, 1999

    If you're trying to soak up some culture on the Web, going about it by plugging a name into a search engine is bound to be frustrating. Artcyclopedia offers another option: Enter an artist's name and it will plumb its own database of art-oriented Web-dom for relevant sites. It couldn't have been much fun assembling this database, but it works well and doesn't make you wait. Elsewhere, the site offers reviews of museum sites (one, for instance, chastises the HTML of the Hermitage's Web presence) and monthly tours of Web sites about particular artists. Be advised, however, that the "featured book" and "featured print" selections of these tours simply link you to click-here-to-buy pages from Amazon.com and Art.com, respectively.
