Last March I wrote about a show called From Impressionism to Modernism: The Chester Dale Collection that was on view at the time at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC.
Though the exhibition is long over, I recently stumbled across an article on the exhibition on About.com, not usually a site I think of as a destination for art images.
I may have to re-think that assessment as the article is accompanied by an 84 image gallery of works, which you can view as thumbnails on the article page (note “Next >” link at bottom for more thumbnails), or by starting with the first image and clicking through.
The images on the individual pages are linked to much larger versions. Though not quite high resolution by the standards of some web images these days, they are large enough to be quite satisfying. I’ve tried to show the relative scale with the detail crop of each of the images above.
