Searching on "anthroposophy" will also bring good results. By clicking your browser refresh/reload button, all new selections will be displayed. Give it a try!
. The eGallery — Fine Art Presentations is back! (as of 12/08/2003)
In case you haven't noticed ...
We are again pleased to announce, after over a year of being closed, the new and improved eGallery has reopened to the public. It is our Fine Art Presentation site.

We have accomodated some artists by removing them from the site, and have also added many new Artists and Categories to the site: categories in the areas of Art Movement, Artists by Century and Ethnicity, and some Special Collections. All artists are recognized as true artists, however, there are some artworks that parents may feel are unsuited for their child's viewing, especially in the Fantasy and Pin-up Collections. Please be aware.

So, have a visit, and let us know what you think — your comments and suggestions are always welcome.
