A really interesting site I read about the other day was from google - their "Art project" site. This is a work in progress and will only improve further (although a fantastic site as is). Many of the world's leading art galleries have come on board. There are tours around the gallery, visits to different floors and rooms. You can zoom in on a painting to examine the smallest detail or brush stroke. Incredible ! A fantastic resource for any student - regardless of age. Mainly European art at the moment - but plans for Australian galleries to join at a later date. Have a look.
