Claude Monet - Bassin aux NympheasMost of us are familiar with Claude Monet's name. His name and paintings kept coming up every other year or so, either as stolen or breaking another auction record. The latest is $85 millions by an anonymous buyer for one of his large waterlily paintings.

Le Bassin aux Nympheas was part of a four-work collection of waterlily paintings that Monet put up for sale during his lifetime. He saw the oil paintings of his water garden as a work in progress, and rarely sold them.

Virtual Museum Gallery

As an extension to my current Golden Age Children's Book Illustrators archive. I'm pleased to announce the Virtual Museum Project, it is a result of the many years of collecting art books about my favorite artists, trolling around the Net and the frustrations of not finding what I wanted.

The Virtual Museum Project has a simple goal. To display the artworks of my favorite masters of the past online and to be as comprehensive as possible.

Gustave Klimt - Ver SacrumGustav Klimt is my favorite artist from the Vienna Secession period and is easily among the most well known masters of the 19th century. Klimt was born in Baumgarten, near Vienna in 1872, and lived in poverty for most of his childhood, as work was scarce and the economy difficult for immigrants.

In 1876, Klimt was enrolled in the Vienna School of Arts and Crafts (Kunstgewerbeschule), where he studied until 1883, and received training as an architectural painter. Klimt began his professional career painting interior murals and ceilings in large public buildings on the Ringstra├če including a successful series of "Allegories and Emblems".

New site redesign and I need some help. E-mail

My old site is falling apart, part of the old template stopped working because I upgraded some code. So I went full fledged and upgraded the CMS (Joomla) to a newer version to improve speed of the site and add more features. Some links may have changed, if you're linking to us, please verify and make sure it's still valid.

I'm also looking for someone who can design a logo for me and/or change the color scheme a bit to make it standout and easier to read. I'm using a template and do not have the necessary graphics skills to modify it to my liking. I can't pay you in money, but you do have my deepest thanks and credit for your work, plus a print or two of your choice from my gallery. If you can help me out, please contact me. Thanks.

Three and plus years working on this site and now three and plus thousand images, all scanned by hand from my collection. Yay ! Happy 3000 anniversary to, another milestone reached. It was hard work, lots of time well spent, not only in scanning books, but finding them and presenting them to you. My sincere thanks to the few who took the time to write to me and those to have spent a few precious dollars on the prints to support this site. It does sometimes pay for the cost of hosting of the site and I'm grateful for your support in an Internet world that almost everyone expect everything to be free ! Thank you again and I'm looking forward to the 4000 anniversary. In the mean time enjoy !

Thomas MacKenzie - The Story of Hassan of Bagdad
I've been away for awhile, busy paying the bills. I guess many of you feel the pinch too, not a good time for lots of us. Anyhow, I had a little time last weekend to scan a new book: The Story of Hassan of Bagdad, illustrated by Thomas MacKenzie, one of the lesser known Golden Age illustrator. The book was first published in 1924 by Heinemann.
