Mary Addison Hackett, "Turner's Vignette", 2013
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 Artsy browsing up-and-coming and established contemporary artists!

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."
