The Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg, one of the world's most stunning art museums, now has its own website. We have linked you to the English-language version. If your Russian fonts are working, try the Russian version instead.

The WebMuseum in Paris has a wealth of material, though mostly on non-Russian art. Of special interest to us are their sites on Kandinsky and Malevich.

The Virtual Tour of Solovki by Professor Sibelan Forrester of Swarthmore is included here, in part because Francoise Rosset was one of the three others with her. It's a great site anyway.
