1080p artwork downloads/dvds? (NOT GalleryPlayer)

Hello all. First time posting, but I've been lurking for a while, soaking up the AV goodness here - thanks to the great feedback I've seen here, I've decided on getting a Samsung LNT4665F in a couple weeks - the decision was sealed after seeing one in a store today and after fiddling with the contrast and backlight levels for a few seconds, everything popped. But I digress. . .

I've currently got a plethora of HD sources to provide content for this bad boy - Comcast moto dual tuner HD DVR, PS3, Apple TV, building a living room PC as well - and the one last thing I want to add isn't so much a video source as it is a specific type of content.

I'd really like to find a source for image files of classic artwork (the usual suspects - Ansel Adams, Rembrandt, Monet, etc.) preformatted in 1080p. Kind of like what GalleryPlayer does, but a bit more open, without the DRM or shell software - so I could stream JPGs wirelessly via AppleTV, or use the PC, PS3, heck, I could just plug a USB stick into the Samsung. Download or on DVD, the delivery vector doesn't much matter.

Does anyone have any ideas? I'm not stuck on the pre-formatted thing- I can resize if I need to, I guess what I'm really looking for is a legit source for quality artwork images.

Apologies if this is in the wrong thread - it's not exactly HDTV software, but I'm not sure where it should go.

I usually just do a Yahoo/Google search something like "1920x1080 images" to find different wallpapers and pictures to view on the PS3. I don't know if there will be any artwork that you're looking for but it could be a good start.
Thanks for the suggestion, Noah. I've found some images pre-formatted for 1080p online, but not much of the kind I'm looking for, and a lot of it has been hit-and-miss in quality ("hey, I went to the Louvre and took a cr*ppy picture of the Mona Lisa! I'll put it on PicasaWeb - because nobody's seen this one!").

I guess I'll either have to hunt down images from different sources and resize, or I'll have to put GalleryPlayer on the living room PC (grumble::I hate DRM::grumble).
 www.webshots.com has tons of 1920X1080 screen savers, slide shows wall papers of places, flowers, birds, gardens you name it and art. Plus you can use it as a photopbucket. Around $29 a year. I've been subscribing to it for 3-4 years and everyone who comes over loves to gawk at the pictures which have optional captions.
