Meet the Masters


Imagine meeting one of the world's greatest artists, such as Michelangelo or Rembrandt. What questions would you have for a master artist? How do you think he or she would respond? Although most of the best-known masters have long since passed on, you can still "meet" them on the Internet and learn about them. The web sites created to introduce you to great artists may not answer all of your questions, but they will offer many facts and show examples of their masterpieces. Once you have made your Internet visit, use your imagination and your new knowledge to envision a real encounter.
