Much like her husband, Boris Vallejo, Julie Bell is one of the top tier artists in the field of fantasy. Although her work is very reminiscent of her husband's work, Julie Bell's brilliant use of color, dramatic composition, and her trademarked "metal flesh", puts her oil paintings in a class unto itself. Bell's work may be found on covers of books, trading cards, calendars, t-shirts, and all sorts of other merchandise.
This is the official Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell website. Visitors can purchase prints and merchandise or peruse through both artists' art galleries.
Around 30 Julie Bell paintings are displayed on this site.
On this webpage, you'll find Julie Bell paintings that contain dragons, serpents, and other scaly creatures.
You won't find any reading material whatsoever on this page, but at least there's 25 Julie Bell paintings to look at.
Now here's a pretty unique webpage. The artwork on here were created using graphic software on a Commodore 64. Yep that's right, that lil' 8-bit computer from the early to mid 80's. I used to do some artwork on the old machine myself and never got the results these talented artists did. They were able to do some outstanding replications of Julie Bell's paintings. Amazing!
When it comes to the world of art, it would very hard to find a more popular artist than Michelangelo Buonarroti. He is one of the greatest artists of all time. His work has been some of the most recognizable pieces ever, despite having several centuries pass. Even though he was a very accomplished sculptor, one of his most famous works was painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. This amazing piece took him four years (1508-1512) to complete, most of which he spent laying on his back. The painting contained more than 300 life-sized figures and depicted 9 scenes that come from the book of Genesis.
Please note... Michelangelo's name is often mispelled 'Michaelangelo'. It only has one 'a' in it. With that said, I already know that some of the titles in the links are mispelled. I chose not to alter any mispelled titles made by the web publishers.
Michelangelo doesn't have an official site of his own, because he's been dead for centuries. However, this site is the very best Michelangelo site on the web. You can learn all about him and even view a lot of his work.
You can view different parts of Michelangelo's painting on the Sistine Chapel, at this site.
This is a very small webpage that gives a very short summary of Michelangelo's life. This one is pretty lame.
If you're interested in some books about Michelangelo and his works, you'll want to check out this webpage. This site is associated with Amazon.com, so it's probably pretty legit.
Another small site. This one showcases three parts of the Sistine Chapel painting.
This site has some pretty good info on Michelangelo. It also has a bit of background info on some parts of the painting from the Sistine Chapel.
This is another site with lots of good info. Several of Michelangelo's works are also on display at this site. There are also some closeup shots showing the detail in his sculptures.
This site has most, if not all, of Michelangelo's works up for viewing. An excellent site.
The flamboyant and egocentric artist known as Salvador Dali is one of the 20th century's biggest influences in modern art. His art was greatly influenced by Dr. Sigmund Freud's theory of the unconscious and an association with leading French surrealists. It wouldn't be long before he became the most renowned surrealist of all time. Imaginatived dream imagery in his artwork are a trademark of his, as is his funny looking moustache.
This is the official website of the Dali Museum at St. Petersburg, Florida, which houses one of the largest Salvador Dali collections in the world.
Here's the official website for the Salvador Dali Foundation, which was fully endorsed by the artist himself in order to manage, promote, and protect his artwork.
In my opinion, this is the best Salvador Dali related website on the internet. Over 1,500 pieces of art are showcased here as well as a ton of information relating to the artist and surrealism. Posters, prints, books, and more merchandise are in stock for collectors. There is also a forum for fans and collectors for Dali-related discussion.
The archives is a private repository of information about Salvador Dali that was approved by the artist himself. They have published several books on the artist, and provide a service to discern authentic works from the many fraudulent works in circulation.
A biography of the artist may be found here. Prints and merchandise is also available as well as screensavers and desktop wallpapers.

This small section of the Science Museum is dedicated to Leonardo da Vinci, the inventor. There's little information for some of his inventions like the Helical Gear, Crankshaft, and Ball-Bearings. This site has nothing to do with his art.

This is very amusing site dedicated to all things relating to the Mona Lisa. You can find theories on her smile, art parodies, and even gifts (such as socks and boxer shorts) bearing her image. This site is great.

Of the sites already listed, this one showcases the most works of art by Leonardo.
The art genius, known as Frank Frazetta, got his first big break in art when he was accepted into the Brooklyn Academy of Fine Arts at the age of eight. Ever since, he's been mastering the trade, propelling his name to one of the greatest fantasy artists of all time. If you've looked at fantasy art in the past, chances are that you've come across some of Frazetta's work, as they are some of the most popular in the genre.

No science-fiction art site would be complete without a section devoted to the master, Frank Frazetta. Here you'll find a few paintings and a short "write-up" on the artist. You can purchase prints here as well.
Don't worry if you don't understand Italian. As long as you stay in the fantasy art section of this site, you should be alright. Besides, one doesn't need an understanding of Italian to appreciate the excellent Frezetta artwork posted here.
Again it's an Italian site, but everything is in English except the ads. There's little to read here anyways, so enjoy the artwork.
Harmenszoon van Rijn, Rembrandt
Painting, etching, drawing, and teaching art, 17th Century Dutch artist, Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn, excelled at all of these activities. Even to this day, his paintings are almost unmatched and there has yet to be an etcher that rivals him. He was a master of creating the illusion of lights and shadows, making his works all the more life-like. Some would even argue that his paintings are even better than photographs. Though the number of his works aren't exactly known, we do know that he's been accredited to more than 2,000 individual pieces.
