The links:

the db site is not here to draw you away from artists,
on the contrary!
I'm not selling prints or merchandise.
I'm just here to draw your attention to some of the great artists
that you may not have found elsewhere.
Lots of artists do sell works
or reproductions through their own site or agents.
This is where the linkslist below may be useful . . .

no pretention of being complete here . . .
just some artists who have great sites of themselves,
which makes it kind of useless to copy their work to db pages.
( personal preferences did play a role in the selection )

    window on a recent artists movement that strives to restore respectability for figurative art and strongly rejects the art elitist who controlled public musea and the "respected' artworld and have alledgedly driven art appreciation away from the common man's taste.
