renoirpiano.jpg The Metropolitan Museum of Art has a wonderful website. About 6,500 of the Met’s more than two million works of art can be accessed online, including art from all over the world, and all time periods.Every day, a different ‘Featured Work of Art’ is displayed on the home page. The ‘Timeline of Art History is another fantastic section of the site not to be missed. I could spend days exploring it.

Register (it’s free, and requires only a user name, e-mail address, and zip code) for access to special features, including ‘My Met Gallery’ which lets you create a personal gallery featuring up to 50 of your favorites from the museum’s extensive online collection.

    Sister Wendy insists you can go a very long way towards appreciating a work of art without seeing the original. Never has a nun with a speech impediment done more for art appreciation.
