200 Russian Painters

Here is a chance to get up close and personal with some of Russia's best art, both classical and modern. This website has a gallery of nearly a thousand works of art, by over 200 different Russian artists, all presented in high resolution.

I'm going to warn you, this site is a major time sink. You're sure to find some of your favorite works of art there, as well as a ton of new artists that will quickly become favorites too. It's a good thing most of you have the day off!

  8. Russian culture fascinates me. They make everything flamboyant, but not gaudy (Rococo, I'm looking at you). My bishop and his wife went to St. Peter's a few years ago, and said everything was beautiful. Their testimony inspired me to go there someday. You're not making my patience easier by showing this site!
