Portitude: The Art of Learning

I came across Portitude completely by accident. I am very glad I did. There are two sections to the site: Paper Portitude and Painted Portitude.

From the site:
"Paper Portitude is the library, chock full of luscious short stories, fairy tales, and even some non-fiction for good measure. Includes some of the finest authors, such as O'Henry, and Hans Christian Andersen."
"Painted Portitude, the art gallery, portrays some of the greatest works by Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Monet, O'Keeffe, and other such artists from around the world, and throughout history."
There are tons of very good stuff here. It is worth a visit for the Grimm Fairy Tales alone. They are all there. You will also find Emily Dickinson, Mark Twain, Poe and many others. In the Painted Portitude you will find works by Cezanne, Monet, Rosseau, Sargent and more. Everything is elegantly presented and delightful.
