The World-Wide Web offers a gallery of possibilities for art-lovers. Let's start with the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York. Once you get to the site, click on the MOMA to get to the main menu. Here you'll find a guide to the museum's permanent collection, exhibitions, film and video programmes and tips on visiting the real museum. Even a quick glance at the painting and sculpture collection clearly shows the importance of MOMA. It's all here, from 1880s Cezannes, through 1930s Mondrians to Jackson Pollock's splash paintings from the 1960s. MOMA holds the world's largest collection of modern painting and you can get a taste of what's on offer here. Next, how about a museum that doesn't even exist in the physical sense? The WebMuseum, Paris project was created at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Telecommunications. The background information on the project is in French so I have no real idea what's going on here but it looks impressive. WebMuseum's Picasso exhibit is beautifully done with a time-line on the artist and cubism to explain the process through which he developed his distinctive style. There are also pages explaining the artist's relationship to that other, less famous creator of cubism, George Braque, as well as his debt to earlier artists such as Vermeer and Rembrandt. Finally, there are some great pictures sorted by topic, portraits, still lifes, landscapes etc. The images are slow to download but they're worth it. Also from the WebMuseum, the Mark Rothko pages have some stunning reproductions of his huge abstracts. Some are too large to fit on the screen in one go but that just forces you to look more closely than you might otherwise do. Obviously nothing can compare to the real thing but the WebMuseum does a good job. I didn't have time to check through the whole of this project but I'm assuming every major artist can be found somewhere in the WebMuseum's pages. Just type the name of the artist you're looking for and scroll down the page until you get to the WebMuseum's site. For more real museum sites, the best place to start is Art Museums at World Wide Arts Resources. Here you'll find more than 970 museums from around the world listed by location. We're not just talking art either: everything's covered from anthropology through to natural history. Most of these sites also have links to city guides and include tourist information. By the way, if you're sceptical about modern art check out the Modern Art? page. It's basically a list of pretentious art descriptions culled from recent issues of New York magazine. Some of these also appear in the March issue of Spy magazine. How does 'mixed-medium, surrealist paintings on themes of Catholicism, fear, beauty and money, including a portrait of Abraham Lincoln as a Georgian walnut chair' grab you? Or what about 'an installation that explores the meaning of reception desk'? Fancy something a lot more serious? Try the Ancient World Web. Would you like to see a 3D reconstruction of an ancient Egyptian mummy? Or perhaps early Korean history would suit you better? It's all here. This is a vast list of links to ancient history sites, from ABZU - a guide to ancient near-East resources, all the way to the Zoroastrianism frequently-asked-questions page. I checked the mummy image but the picture downloaded so slowly that I gave up before I got to anything interesting.
