Tate Online: In Focus

The Tate Gallery in London has received numerous accolades for its fine online educational resources, including archived public presentations and lectures. The In Focus website is yet another one of these types of Internet resources, and allows those with an interest in art to hone in on various subjects in greater detail. By looking through their "In Focus" series, visitors may learn about landscape painting in America, the "pop art" movement of the 1960s, and surrealism. A real treat on the site is the "Works in Focus" section, which allows visitors close and contextual appraisals of a number of modern installations, such as Damien Hirst's provocative "Pharmacy" and that most famous painting, "Ophelia" by John Everett Millais. The Millais feature is also notable as it includes a fine interactive timeline of Millais's life, along with a detailed look at the materials and techniques deployed in the creation of this powerful and popular piece of craftsmanship.
