Summary
Presents a directory of art resources on the Internet, created by John Malyon and searchable by movement, medium, subject, or artist name. Links to art museums and lists the top 30 sites for the month. Features a different print and book every month.
"John Malyon, the creator of Artcyclopedia, says that he wants this site to become "the definitive and most effective guide to museum-quality fine art on the Internet." It is certainly true that a lot has been accomplished in the short amount of time since this website first went online in February 1999. The number of entries has steadily grown to 80,000 works by 7000 different artists on 700 leading arts sites. The criterion for inclusion in the Artcyclopedia is that the artist must be included in an art museum collection somewhere in the world. The site's best search is by artist, but the user can also search for artworks, art museums, or browse by movement or medium. An artist search brings up links to online museums, image archives and articles about the artist. There are the ubiquitous links to Amazon.com and Allposters.com to purchase related merchandise, but otherwise the site is mercifully banner-free and the author pledges to keep it that way."--Reviewed Apr. 4, 2001.
