A joint project of San Francisco's de Young Museum and the Legion of Honor, this was one of the earliest museum websites to jump into the Web with both feet. It now hosts huge scans of 82,000 artworks of various kinds.

FAMSF notes:
  • Select a zoom level in order to enlarge the image. Instead of using your monitor size, I suggest simply selecting the highest size available (24").

  • When you zoom in, the image is made up of a bunch of tiled JPEG files. Therefore, if you want to set the work as your desktop wallpaper or save it to your local hard drive, you have to do a screen grab and paste it into a graphics program. (In Windows, the command for screen grab is alt-shift-PrintScreen.)
