Glyphs Art Reviews
Theory and Criticism
Art CD-ROM Reviews
The Artchive offers browser access in HTML format to the archive for all of my fine art scans. There are now more than 2,000 scans from over 200 different artists.
Glyphs Art Reviews link to art exhibit reviews I have written for an online magazine called Glyphs. They include text as well as images from recent museum exhibitions. Currently, they include "Kandinsky: Compositions", "James McNeill Whistler", "Claude Monet: 1840-1926" and "Johannes Vermeer".
[Note that the Glyphs reviews are now placed under the Juxtapositions section of the site.]
The Galleries is the entry point to the online exhibitions currently showing:
1925: The Year in Review
Max Beckmann: "Departure"
The First Impressionist Exhibition, 1874
Goya: The Black Paintings
One Man Show: Rembrandt includes seven of the master's greatest works in a virtual gallery setting. Be sure to zoom in for the level of detail required for a true appreciation of these masterpieces.
Theory and Criticism. This gallery will include the best in art criticism. I will scan an excerpt of both text and images from a masterpiece of art criticism and present it online as if you were reading the book. My intention is not to violate copyright law, but to provide an excerpt in the context of a review. It is my sincere hope that a taste of great writing will entice you to go out and buy the book. Currently featured:
Leo Steinberg: Selections
Vermeer and the Art of Painting
Meyer Schapiro on Cézanne
Kenneth Clark: Velazquez' "Las Meninas"
Juxtapositions is a section of verbal and visual commentary on art. This section provides a forum for me to inflict my amateur art criticism on the world.
Art CD-ROM Reviews offers my personal opinion (and those of others who have kindly contributed reviews) on the commercially available CD-ROM art collections. I buy every one I can get my hands on, but you may be more discriminating with your cash, so use this as a guide. Please let me know if I am missing any, or if you would like to contribute a review.
Art Links will send you to some of the more interesting art sites I have seen on the Web. The links are divided into Museums, Artists, and Resources.
The links in these three sections are keepers. But I often run across, or people tell me about interesting sites that I would like to share with you. Some of these "picks of the moment" will gravitate to the keeper links, some will disappear. Check back for updates on an irregular basis...
Finally, please bear with me as I continue to refine the site. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.
