There are many good "meta-pages" -- huge collections of links chosen by one or more experts, often with short comments or descriptions. The ones I use most often are:

Artnet.com Magazine -- With it's barrage of photo- and gossip-filled "Letters from [London, Rome, Paris, Venice, New York, Athens, etc.]," Artnet.com's online magazine has become so useful and so alive that it must be described as essential reading for anyone working in the visual arts.

Notebook -- a very unusual site. It looks like it's meant to be private -- a labor of love, or obsession, created as a personal reference-tool. Yet the name of the site's creator isn't revealed. Its internal linking is haphazard, so it's hard to know exactly what's there. What makes this site worth visiting anyway are the long and uncommon texts - entire books in some cases, e.g. How to Care for Works of Art on Paper by Francis Dolloff and Roy Perkinson; part of John Ruskin's The Elements of Drawing (1857); etc.

Tracey - an online focus for contemporary drawing, maintained by Jane Tormey at Loughborough University's School of Art and Design in England. There is almost nothing here about history, collecting or the art market. They view drawing as a tool for thinking and analysis.

Umelec (Artist) -- great international magazine based here in Prague.

a node for Jack Burnham -- my attempt to provide access to the writing and ideas of this great theorist.
