Spotlight - 200 Russian Painters

First off - have a great New Year's Eve, and in, advance, Happy New Year!

I ran across this website about a month ago, and was hugely impressed. There aren't too many names you're likely to be familiar with, but the quality and variety of subjects is stunning. Most, if not all, of the paintings are also in very high resolution, so you can get a good look at the detail.

Here's the link:

If you know any great art websites or articles, why not share them here? Send your suggestions to - please note that this isn't for self-promotion!

Warning - possible scam

This email has been sent round by Artists and Illustrators:

Dear all,

Thanks to a couple of eagle-eyed Portfolio members, it’s come to our attention that a suspicious character by the name of ‘Steven Caddae’ is contacting our members.

He is offering to buy paintings via PayPal and should NOT be trusted. It is almost certainly a scam.

For your own security, please do not give out your private information to this man.

Kind regards,
Artist & Illustrators

Any LAS members contacted by 'Steven Caddae' should follow the same advice. Thanks to Lee Anderson for the heads-up.
