I`ve mentioned a couple of times that I really like visual aids for
role-playing sessions, and as inspiration for particular characters or
adventures. In particular, I find certain genres and artists useful for
this purpose. The Pre-Raphaelites, for instance, tend to have a focus on
medieval and ancient scenes, many of which can apply to D&D sessions--for
all that such usage might make an Art Historian`s skin crawl....
Anyway, here`s a link to a site that I`ve found has many nice, useful scans
of classical works all broken down by artist. It also has some background
material on the artists and contains the occasional description of the
specific work`s impact and inspiration, which is always nice. Best, it`s free:
Any particular sites anyone would recommend?

The pre-raphaelites definitely are the cat's meow, the bomb, the s&@t, etc. of art. I have loads of books of their art, but don't know of any good websites for you. The Tate Museum site has a few famous pieces, but not lots.
