I spent the better half of an hour viewing this site. I thought that the
material contained useful information and photo's that relate to a variety of
historical art including ancient art, European decorative, European painting,
and works on paper. It would be a very useful resource for an art major, or any
art enthusiest. I found the ancient art most interesting because I am very
interested in the history of ancient civilizations. The web page was loaded with
easy to use links to information or virtual art galleries. I would recommend
this site for even the first time user.

I spent about twenty minutes viewing this site. Although I do not teach art, my
husband teaches art appreciation and art history online. There is a great
collection of art at the Legion of Honor, especially the European Paints
(Seurat, Monet, El Greco, Etc.). The paintings on permanent display as well as
the current exhibit would enhance any art history course. It is such a
wonderful way to visit an art musuem hundreds and thousands of miles away. It
was a very easy site to navigate.

Technical Remarks:

Since I was a first time user, I think students and faculty would find this site
extremely easy to use.

This site is very impressive. You could spend hours here looking at just the
images that are available online. I have used this site to put together
presentations for state and national art education conferences. I sent an
e-mail seeking permission to use a few of the images in a national presentation
and received a positive and pleasant reply within two days from FAMSF. (Of course, I then
used this exchange of e-mail as an example of paying attention to copyright and
how to seek permission with my students.) This site has a wealth of
information and for those of us who are hundreds of miles from a big art museum,
a site like this one makes a huge difference to us and our students.
