re-organising this blog

I'm trying to get this blog better organised - specifically adding more labels to posts to make accessing the blog archives easier. I've added alphabetical labels so you can now search for a specific artist by surname. I'll be adding a few more labels as well. This will be an ongoing process for the next few weeks but it should mean the archives will be much more user-friendly.

Adding more labels for particular schools of painting will be the next step but it's not as simple as it sounds since some artists don't fit neatly into schools, or they fit equally well into several different schools.
