An work of art a day keeps the doctor away, so help me find them.

Is there a Twitter feed that posts a variety of works of art regularly? I'm trying to inspire myself to be more artistic, and a part of these efforts is to expose myself to art that I might not see otherwise. I'm on Twitter on and off throughout the day, so I thought that a Twitter feed that posts images of works of art would be helpful. I'm particularly interested in modern art, collages and mixed media. Any thoughts? Thanks!

Rabih Alameddine does this. He's posting a lot of poetry right now but usually posts several images a day.

It's not twitter, but Colossal updates pretty regularly (seems like at least once a day) with new stuff.

archillect is a image bot that crawls the internet and posts "interesting" things. It has a twitter feed.

I also follow FFD8FFDB which claims to take screenshots of internet connected webcams and posts them with some sort of filter.

Olga Tuleninova posts 1-5 paintings/artworks per day. Most of them are lesser-known works by celebrated painters, or works from less well-known painters, but there are occasionally more contemporary pieces.

Click through the Twitter accounts she occasionally retweets. THere are hundreds, if not thousands, of Twitter feeds like this.

I follow Stephen Ellecock on Facebook. He's an extraordinary curator. Perhaps he has a Twitter feed.

I LOVE @womensart1.

Not quite art art art, but @Eccentric Archive RTs a lot of interesting stuff throughout the day.

@GRAD_London tweets a lot of Russian & Soviet art and is generally enormously interesting.

I'm a fan of the East London Group account. If you follow them they'll eventually send you a picture! Mine was of a lighthouse. They also have a strangely reassuring ritual of posting the same painting every Sunday morning (Sunday Morning, Farringdon Road by Cecil Osborne from 1929).

You're on Facebook right? Look for the public page of "Stephen Ellcock" and follow that. You won't regret it.

Charley Parker runs the Lines and Colors blog, which I've always quite liked. He notes updates on his Twitter account.

Julian Merrow-Smith's daily paintings and auction is so wonderful to receive every day.

Do you use Chrome? The Google Art Project extension makes each new tab you open display a work of art.
