I'm looking for new wallpaper photos or art, in 1600 tall x 2560 wide, or larger. (Well, actually over, say 1200 pixels on the longest side might be useful (it can be good to have space for the icons). And it does not have to be landscape format.)
There are many sites out there with desktop images, many for free. But almost everything I find is crass in some way. Over-saturated, cutesy landscapes and such. I want something more subtle, and original. I don't even mind paying for it if it's good.
Big, high-quality of fine art paintings or drawings might be one option. But it's rare to find scans/photos which are big and good quality.
Update: I just decided to do an experiment and just photograph a couple of pages from an Andrew Loomis book. They do the job for me.
They are casually photographed, hand-held, indoors in ordinary room light, but thanks to modern sensors and stabilization, the quality is good.
One could also have good full tilt careful scans, precisely aligned, etc. But I tend to like a certain marriage of precision with seeming roughness and casualness.
Update: I included the drawings of men as a service to my female readers, why should they be left out.
Loomis here, here, and here.
Oooh, and here are a couple of Alphonse Mucha:
