Do you browse, surf, sculpts?
 
I'm an amateur, so I'm allowed to look at as much sculpture as I want. I look at a lot and am amazed at the number of sites showing sculpture [among all the other arts] and, indeed, classifying it in many ways--style, medium, price, content, artist, etc. I relish what I believe to be the fact that I have very likely seen more pieces of sculpture--albeit in pictures--than any critic working at any time prior to the last 25 years. So much, so easy, yes, it's almost sculpture porn.
I would love to learn whether the professionals out there surf sculpture. I suspect there is a fear of artistic corruption that may inhibit it. I also suspect that there may be a feeling that people [collectors] just may not go to a show when they can see much more sitting at the computer. Also, like the early churchmen with the Bible, a feeling that the word must not come too easy and without the guidance of the elite. Is there a question whether unlimited access to and viewing of sculpture images is a good thing?
Any thoughts appreciated--also recommendations of the best sites.

I am also an amateur so don't take me too seriously....I think the best sites to view sculpture are in the room you are in or outside the window where you place the large pieces before they are delivered. Look at sculpture everywhere but the real appreciation is to create.
I don't fear artistic corruption so much as those certified letters from the attorney representing a artist who claims you are infringing.
