Here are some that haven't been added
Mary Addison Hackett, "Turner's Vignette", 2013
Artsy is a website that has proven increasingly useful in the art world. It's part image database, part museum and gallery liaison, part art retailer, and home of the Art Genome Project, which seeks to map artworks by style, subject matter, media, and more. Check it out and explore some of the links - it's particularly useful in browsing up-and-coming and established contemporary artists!
Utagawa Hiroshige, Evening Snow on Hira, Lake Biwa, c.1835
The Metropolitan Museum of Art has made nearly 400,000 hi-res images of works from their collection available into the public domain. With an easy interface for searching and images ranging from Ancient Egypt to the present, it's almost as good as visiting the museum in person!
The Getty Research Institute has added thousands of new images to its Open Content Program. Two notable additions are the collections are 4,000+ images of tapestries from the 15th to 18th centuries, and the 77,000 images of Foto Arte Minore: Max Hutzel photographs of art and architecture in Italy, 1960-1990.
"Hutzel comprehensively documented lesser-known monuments and churches, photographing exteriors, interiors, and an array of artifacts connected with art historical development in Italy... In some cases, Hutzel's photographs are the only records of structures or objects that have since been demolished, damaged, stolen, or rebuilt."
