Described as a "portfolio of visual art collections" and hosted by the University for the Creative Arts, this site carries the digital archives and collections of a number of museums, education bodies and individuals. Encompassing Ceramics, Design, Painting, Photography, Textiles, Fashion, etc these are accessed under two headings: "Collections", which tend to be a "walkthrough" of the images making up the particular collection, and "Resources",  which are detailed writings on the various practices and practitioners (e.g. from the University's own collection, in depth career biographies of Marianne de Trey, B. Leach, L. Rie and detailed explanations of the decoration and glazing on pieces by Batterham, Bayer, Caiger-Smith, Maltby, P-Bouveri, Rie, etc)

Primarily intended as a resource for "arts eduction, research and development", some of the content might be rather "dense", but there is great deal of interesting stuff.
