I'd like to learn more about visual composition, especially for photography and painting. Are there any books or websites you would recommend as a primer to the subject?

Pastels in London and Paris Museums

Thinking of visiting London and Paris next year...also been getting into pastels so would like to hit up art museums with a good number of quality pastel paintings by Degas, Renoir, etc. (prefer impressionist style). Which museums provide this abundance? I'm thinking the Musée d'Orsay, maybe the Louvre...anywhere else?

Arming Myself with Art!

My husband admires the work of John Taylor Arms with his fine attention to detail. Is there somewhere that I can buy inexpensive copies of his prints (in other words, under $100)?
