This site presents more than 70,000 images of artwork and objects drawn from collections in the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and adds images regularly. Images are organized by department, such as “African Art”; “Costume and Textiles”; and “Prints and Drawings”; and the images are easy to browse. To facilitate browsing, the site has a “Random Images” option that generates pages of images from all departments. The most substantial sections are “Japanese Art,” with about 2,500 images, and “South & Southeast Asian Art,” with 2,000 images sorted by country. In addition, the “Photography” section offers prints ranging in date from 1840 to the present. All images may be enlarged and manipulated using the Image Viewer, which saves images previously viewed. The site also includes a simple and advanced search function, both of which allow for date-restricted searching.
