The Women Artists Archives National Directory (WAAND) is an online directory to U.S. archival collections of primary source materials by and about women visual artists and women’s arts organizations in the U.S. from January 1, 1945, to present day. WAAND consists of three linked databases: a Repository Directory, Collections, and an Entity (artist or artists’ organization) Database.

“I believe that the issues we women were involved in were really so universal. We were trying hard to touch every part of the world; every part of thinking; and every part of what was going on here, there, and everywhere”
Miriam Schapiro, 2004

A complete overview of the life, work and artitic milieu of the 17th-century Dutch Paining Master Johannes Vermeer.
The Essential Vermeer was first launched 11 years ago by artist Jonathan Janson. Since its inception, the Essential Vermeer has grown from a simple one-page list of Vermeer websites and publications to one of the most comprehensive websites dedicated to the artist Johannes Vermeer. To date, the site contains over 5,000 web objects, over 500 individual web pages, thousands of links, more than 3,000 images and roughly 200 audio files.
The Essential Vermeer has become a place where I have done my best to present an organic and objective overview of Vermeer’s art, life and times…Maintaining the highest degree of historical accuracy and objectivity, while continuing to expand the site’s depth and breadth, is fundamental. Since I am a painter by profession, I have limited my personal considerations to the more technical aspects of Vermeer’s paintings: after all, that’s where I really feel at home. –Jonathan Janson

“Art is simple, but powerful. We live in a wide variety of cultures and societies. Our values are also different and, sadly, many times conflicting in one way or another. Art is one of the few achievements of mankind that is generally and widely accepted and appreciated. Art is universal, powerful, and makes us more human. Instead of dividing, art, at its best, brings us together in enjoyment and understanding. Art is the universal language.”
