Image database

Posted by nathaniel stern | Tue Oct 2nd 2007 7:03 a.m.

Hey all:

Have a friend looking for an image database for paintings, prints,
etc, categorized by keyword or subject. Does not need to be free, but
does need to be historical - eg not flickr or google, but something
like a collection or library. Any ideas? Thanks in advance...

    Hi Nathaniel!
    don't know whether this contains specifically what
    your friend is looking for but it's an extensive and
    rather wonderful resource:
