Take the fair face of Woman by Sophie Anderson
Some days, GBR, I need inspiration or I just need to look at some artwork that originated on canvas.
One site fills that need ArtMagick. From the site's intro page:ArtMagick is a virtual gallery dedicated to the continual quest of seeking out obscure 19th century artists and long-forgotten paintings showing a "magic world of romance and pictured poetry". The majority of the content in the archive covers the Pre-Raphaelite and Symbolist movements.
You can send artcards there as well. Beats always sending a Hallmark ecard.

Another site that I love to look at is A Case of Curiosities. Grant it, that the idea of taxidermy is not up most folks' alleys, but the way the site's owner reworks these animals into another realm, is nothing sort of remarkable.
