Google searches for images are great, just one word of caution/advice.
Don't count on being able to use the search at school if you have BESS
or other filters. Our BESS blocks google's image search. Do the search
somewhere else, break out of the frame, and e-mail yourself the URL if
you want to show or print at school. Also if the alt text behind the
picture (used by readers for the blind) has the word nude in it the
picture itself might be blocked by BESS.

The best way to find art for this sort of purpose is to do a
google image search for the artist name. You will usually get
piles of examples of whatever it is you are looking for. What you
look for is the one that is the largest size you can find (in
terms of pixels), go to the site and save the image. Then open
your wordprocessor and orient your paper to match the picture.
Insert the picture into the document, then resize it by clicking
on it and draging one of the corners. Then print it out. I've
done this with quite a few paintings and photos (even rather small
ones) with great success.
