You can go on virtual field trips to such museums as the Louvre in Paris, France; the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, Holland; the Moscow, Russia; the Uffizi Museum in Florence, Italy; the Vatican Museum in Rome, Italy; the Kolumba Art Museum in Cologne, Germany; the Art Institute of Chicago, Illinois; the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, New York, the Boise Art Museum in Idaho.

However, there is some irregularity with your expectations of Renaissance paintings through 1910, for the Renaissance ("rebirth" of the arts) was a cultural movement which only spanned roughly the 14th to the 17th century in Europe.  As such a cultural movement, it was a rebellion of learning based on the classical sources, and it introduced the linear perspective in painting.  Since the Renaissance began in Italy, you may wish to visit Italian museums in particular.
