The Courtald Institute of Art, via Art and Architecture, has made 40,00 images, and much else besides, available online. One more reason to love the web.

WOW! This is astonishing. It's fascinating to choose a sub-category (such as Animal Husbandry or Fishermen) and then sit back and enjoy the unexpected delights.

Thanks for that, Fat Buddha!

The "10 Buildings Which No Longer Exist" image set is haunting. I would love to have seen Park Hall.

Thanks Fat Buddha

I loved that place when I visited it...a stunning museum. Saw the immense Cubism exhibit that blew my mind in 83 -- I was a much younger, very impressionable man and Juan Gris was on my mind long after leaving London.

ha. I just checked out Jane Avril Has left the Building... Fun! I love it when art sites manage to inject some humor and lightheartedness into their presentations. For anyone who's curious: Something about Jane (with links to a few more images, including this beauty); and a photo.

Very interesting site. BTW the British spy Anthony Blunt had a great influence in setting up the Courtald as a serious research institute.

Pedantico-nationalistico nitpick: Courtauld seems to suffer from the same ortographic disease as the word Portuguese, inasmuch as the second 'U' often falls off during writing. ;)
