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.

Kizhi !!!  Many of our students are already familiar with the churches and the museum on the island, but do take a look at this official website for the Kizhi complex.
The Wikipedia entry on Kizhi Pogost is here.

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.
