Website design for presenting an artist's work

Your favorite visual artist's website & why?

I am looking for inspiration and ideas around things like navigation, layout, gallery structure, and the like with regard to presenting an artist's work.

So, tell me about your favorite visual artist's website. It would be great to hear a little about why you like the site itself (as opposed to why you may like the artwork).

I do pretty basic HTML & CSS design so I would mostly appreciate hearing about sites that avoid relying heavily on things like Flash.

Articles about designing a website for presenting art would also be welcome, as would thoughts from anyone here on such matters.

I love this production studio site, and am pretty sure it's mostly javascript: more soon.

Particularly, I enjoy the way it handles photo galleries. First you see an economic layout of all the images. Then you click on one and get the artwork page, then click the artwork to see the whole thing fit-to-screen, then click again to see hi-res—and at any point click anything that's not the image to return.

Not this guy's. His art I love but never make a gallery website which looks like that.
