9. Two from the Museum of Modern Art:

Artists of Brucke: Themes in German Expressionist Prints [Flash]
http://www.moma.org/brucke/

The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City has two new exhibitions
available for Modern art lovers. As the sole US venue, MoMA organized
the
exhibition Alberto Giacometti to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the
Swiss artist's birth. The accompanying Website presents 26 works --
sculpture, paintings, and drawings -- in crisp, high quality images
accompanied by explanations, a complete checklist, a brief biography of
the
artist, chronologies, and a useful bibliography for in-depth reading.
The
second show, Artists of Brucke: Themes in German Expressionist Prints,
is
the first-ever online-exclusive exhibition by MoMA and Second Story
Interactive Studios. The exhibition focuses on themes central to the
Brucke
movement and has been brought to life through animation, music, narrated
quotes, and high quality artworks to evoke the mood and passion of
German
Expressionism. One tiny criticism for these well done exhibitions is
that
the bibliographies offered online for both exclusively list printed
books,
dissertations, and articles omitting any online resources, alas.
However,
both feature stylish presentations with appealing content and are highly
recommended. [DJS]
