The goal of the Artsy website is to bring all types of art to anyone with an internet connection for free. The site is massive. Users can create an account and like certain genres or specific pieces and be recommended new artists. Information on current and upcoming exhibitions is listed, as well, so art-lovers can see their favourite works in person.
They can also have access to artists they already enjoy–like Robert Mapplethorpe. Artsy has 100 of his pieces available in high quality.
All of the images in this post come from the Artsy Robert Mapplethorpe page.

They don’t have some of his more infamous pieces, but there’s still lots to appreciate. I’m looking forward to spending more time on the site to find new artists to share here.
