While researching a paper one night I wanted to see a plate of a Paolo Veronese work, but the library was closed. I did a quick web search and stumbled upon this excellent site. Serendipitous! the wealth of many books, instantly searchable and available anytime.

What a beautiful gallery! I was hoping to find *something* about St. George & the Dragon, and was taken completely by surprise to find so many images, easily viewed together and separately, with fine detail as well as full distance available - and even the option (which I have happily taken up) of sending postcards! You can be sure I will return here often, both for research and sheer pleasure. Thank you!

I find the would be with out a doubt a very suttle and unrealistic world if there were not artist. The creation of art galleries has made a weak, yet modified culture. More people should be involved with art and artistic creation, even if it is only through mind and not just drawing ability. Myself as an artistic photographer feels that more and more art projections should be enforced into everyday living. I found your web site to be very enlighting and comprehendable. AJR

Page 71 of Michael Ondaatje's The English Patient has the following passage: "Looking up with service binoculars in the Gothic church at Arezzo soldiers would come upon their contemporary faces in the Piero della Francesca frescoes. The Queen of Sheba conversing with King Solomon. Nearby a twig from the Tree of Good and Evil inserted into the mouth of the dead Adam. Years later this queen would realize that the bridge over the Siloam was made from the wood of this sacred tree." I was trying to find some imagery to go along with these words. Thankyou very much.

It would have deep meaning for me, as my Mother will be with my husband and myself on our trip. I know my chances are not good, but, I will continue to pray! I would most likely be rendered speechless! HaHa! We are truly looking forward to our visit. May God continue to Bless our Holy Father and keep him always safe. Terryann Simoni

As an Art major at the University of Montevallo, a 4-year public liberal arts college in Alabama, I am currenly enrolled in a Renaisance Art course. At the moment we are focusing on Giotto and the pre-renaissance, making formal and symbolic parallels between the Life of Christ frescoes at the Arena Chapel. Other than a couple of reference books and lecture slides, we have no color works to study, and nothing we can take home to view in the peace and quiet of our own homes and at our leisure. Imagine how difficult it is to note details from black and white photocopies! So you can guess how elated I was to find your web site with full color images of these images which I can access any time! I know that my classmates will also be relieved to learn of your site. And I am sure that I will be visiting your site many times in the future. Thanks for all your hard work compiling this site and for doing your part to promote the arts!

My greatgrandfather has lived in the area of Padua. Maybe, the great painter was a familymember of ours. What I know is... that there are a lot of Guariento`s in and around Padua. Still I`m very proud on my exceptional lastname, here in Holland. And even I am born here in Amsterdam, we still have our italians pasports. hope to find a reaction from you, on my email adres. thank you very much for the possibility to react. loeve from Luigi and Bianca GUARIENTO

Greetings from Mexico City: My name is Jaime A. Holcombe. My late father, Jaime Jose Holcombe spent most of his life in search of our ancestors. Although he worked as an advertising expert, his love for geneology was so profound, he traveled to Spain and England several times (for long months) to search for traces and documents of our past relatives. Just yesterday, I found a Dorchester Abbey guide he brought back from one of his visits. It says... "that in the middle of the chappel, the crusader, Sir John Holcomb, died in the 2nd Crusade, a magnificent piece of medieval carving, one of the most impressive effigies in this country." This is the tomb you have in your site as Effigy of a Knight, which is correct although they add -cross legged. My father also told me Sir John Holcomb was made a Knight in his dying bedplace by Richard Lion Heart; (he really wasn't a Knight until his last momments of life, as he lay mortally wounded from battle, the scene depicted in this effigy). Sir John was made a Knight because of his bravery in battle. There is a legend that tells about him grabbing three enemies heads by their hair, and with one blow of his sword, he was able to decapitate them. The Holcomb shield has three heads because of this story. I hope this information can be helpfull in any way to you and your site. Great job! Keep the good work.

Beatiful!I was looking at the work of titian,because i have a painting that looks like (flora)it seems to be very old but someone has glued it up on a masonite,it seems that the canvas is cut out of an frame long time ago.The canvas is very thin and hard,and in the painting is a similar woman sitting and cambing the hair,littlebit sad looking:Behind the girl on the left side is a mans face (halfface)he is holding in a mirror on the right side of her,the arm is behind the girl.Also there is a reflection of light in the mirror:Someone has tried to paint it over.The painting is in a bad chape,because of the glue.I would gladly send you a picture but i havent got a scanner.Could it be a missing or stolen painting under the first or second worldwar,please contact me if you have some informations!Best regards Leif Nilsson

Blessings on you and your work in providing such beautiful classic art for the "multitudes". I am a Missionary in the poverty stricken areas of Tijuana, and I have used your gallery to download and bring to our Bible study wonderful and inspiring artistic representations of Biblical stories or the lives of the saints. I have made a catalog of all 3,500 art works and have an index to depictions of: Christ (in all ages and stages of his life; The Virgin Mary and the Saints. I have not yet finished printing it, but if you would like me to e-mail it to you in an "attachment", I would gladly do so. Perhaps it may assist other web gallery visitors. The index is like this: Subject: Birth of Christ: Artists who depict: Fra Angelico, Titian, Raphael (these are just a few-the index lists ALL artists of that theme in alphabetical order. Just e-mail and let me know. Gratefully, Sister Gene
