Quite often I have to introduce some paintings to clarify my points during piano teaching. This is especially true when I teach impressionist music. Most of my students are Chinese. They prefer in reading Chinese. But most of the information in the Internet is written in English. Luckily I find one in Chinese: http://vr.theatre.ntu.edu.tw/fineart/
It is written and maintained by Dr Hsien-Hui Lee in Taiwan. It covers quite a lot of topics about arts, including western and Chinese arts history.
He introduces each period style in the western arts with paintings. And I really like he also includes background of each painting and suggests us how to appreciate them.
For arts materials in English I prefer Google Art Project. http://www.google.com/intl/en/culturalinstitute/about/artproject/
