ArtHistoryImages: Over 1000 artists organized by movement, from Byzantine to Realist, from Gothic to Pop. Each movement gives you a list of artists, and each artist's page joins images of their works with information from Wikipedia about their lives. [via mefi projects]

Pretty cool and reminded me of WikiPaintings which I found on a MeFi post. Although it looks like they are combining Jean-Léon Gérôme and Jean Leon Gerome Ferris.

Don't let this observation fool you, I know next to nothing about painters and art movements.

All the images link to ART.COM for print sales. Looks like more of a marketing tool than an educational one.
