'Stories in Art' is a searchable database of paintings and sculptures that tell ancient stories. This project was created as a means to explore works of art that are linked by the stories they depict, and to illuminate the work of art by retelling the story. Similarities and differences become apparent as we compare depictions of the same story by several artists. It is my hope that the visitor will 'discover' a new painting by its connection to a familiar scene, and that the visitor will learn simply by looking, comparing and contrasting.

'Stories in Art: Connections' is a series of pages that take a deeper look at paintings that tell stories, and stories that are told in paintings. This is a work in progress.
