http://picturingamerica.neh.gov/index.php?sec=home Picturing History is a site develped by the National Endowment for the Humanities that has a collection of paintings, drawings and sculptures that have a connection to historical events. The pictures themselves are great, but the are brought into context as you click on a picture. You get a descrition of the historical event that inspired the artwork as well as a brief bio of the artist. The thing that sets this site appart from others is it's amazing interface. It uses a very well designed flash interface that makes viewing and researching the paintings easy and fun. It is well worth taking a look.
