    Historic Illustrations
    The Historic Illustrations of Art and Architecture Project contains 351 scans of late 19th to early 20th century illustrations of mostly architecture and some art. The collection can be searched, browsed, or you can view the entire collection at once. All the image are open to use by the public.
    Museum of the City of New York
    The Museum has a Collections Portal, searchable by theme, by borough, by new additions, and by format. The viewable images now number around 100,000, and range from city photographs to art photos to drawings/paintings/sculpture, to postcards, plans, graffiti, etc. Low-resolution, but PowerPoint-worthy images may be downloaded for educational use, as spelled out here.

    Wikimedia Commons
    Wikimedia Commons is a huge media repository maintained by volunteers. The website has hundreds of thousands of files of images, sounds, and videos for many disciplines. The Art section allows you to browse images from various access points, such as country, culture, genre, period, artist, collectors, etc. Navigation through the various links of the site can be time-consuming, so if you are searching for a specific artwork or artist it would be best to use the search feature (since images are hidden until you get to the most specific category). All of the media files on the site are supposed to be available for educational use-- the specific license conditions of each file can be found on their description pages.

    Flickr Groups are themed image collections created by members of the Flickr photograph-sharing community. There are thousands of Flickr Groups, and more are created daily. The size and quality of images within the groups varies, but overall I am impressed with the images I find there. Copyright protection varies by photographer. A very popular protection on the site is the Creative Commons license, which allows anyone to use, distribute, and change the photograph as long as attribution is given to the creator. To the right of each photograph the copyright information is displayed.

    Art Images
    Art Images for College Teaching was a personal, non-profit resource created by Allan T. Kohl, visual resources curator at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design-- all photographs were taken by Allan. Most of the images have references to pages of major art history textbooks where the work is mentioned. The images are still available and downloadable, but the site is no longer maintained, and there is no longer any information about image use and permissions.

    Digital Imaging Project
    The Digital Imaging Project hosts images of sculpture and architecture from prehistoric to most-modern times. The website is organized by location. The best part of this collection is that each work has many different photographs from various angles, not only the traditional views. See image use guidelines.

    Note on Galleries
    One of the major difficulties in creating this wiki was deciding how to organize the galleries from the 18th through 20th centuries. The creators of this project decided that the most simple and user-friendly method is to break up the galleries chronologically. Please be aware that many art styles and periods span multiple centuries or appeared at different times in different countries. As it is currently organized, 18th century covers Enlightenment, Rococo, Georgian, and Neoclassical; 19th century covers Romanticism, Orientalism, Gothic Revival, Victorian, Realism, Impressionism, Pre-Raphaelites, Symbolism, and Post-Impressionism; early 20th century covers Arts and Crafts Movement, Art Nouveau, Expressionism, Dada, Surrealism, Cubism, and Art Deco; and Modern & Contemporary covers Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, Street Art, etc.

    Artchive
    Mark Harden's "Artchive" contains images of many essential works of art covered in any survey course. You won't find many obscure artists or rare works here, but if you need a high-quality reproduction of one of the essentials this is an excellent resource. The site is easy to navigate by the alphabetical listing of all the artists and periods/styles on the left of the screen. Each entry has some text and a list of images towards the bottom. Scroll to the bottom of this page for image use guidelines.
