ArtMagick is an online gallery of paintings and poetry from the 19th and 20th centuries, with an emphasis on artists "who have been forgotten or neglected in recent years."
This site has a professional layout with high-quality photos of the artwork.
This well-organized site can be navigated in several ways. A top menu bar provides easy access to the main sections of the site. Users can browse by artist name, nationality, and date and painting themes and artists. The online search tool is quick and accurate.
Anyone interested in art will find this site a "source of visual intoxication." Artists who represent the art movements of the 19th and 20th centuries are featured here. The extensive collection of paintings is offered as thumbnails that link to larger images. Users will find short biographies and recommended readings for each featured artist as well as a collection of poetry that can be sent as free e-mail PoemCards. Also available are a video collection, a message board, a mailing list, and some very cool free screensavers. This site is useful for students doing research projects on artists of this period.
