FYI. Another resource.

"The Web Gallery of Art is a virtual museum and searchable database of Western (European) fine arts of the Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, Neoclassicism, Romanticism, Realism, and Impressionism periods (1000-1900), currently containing over 31.800 reproductions."

Thanks, I'm going to have fun with this.

I searched up one of my favorite paintings, Caravaggio's Taking of Christ. They had a nice detail photo of the armor of the soldiers:

There's so much detail and he captures the texture of the different surfaces amazingly well. Caravaggio was truly a master.
