google art project
If you haven't yet spent some time playing with Art Project, Google's latest, endeavor, I would highly recommend heading over there right now to see for yourself just what all the fuss is about. A unique collaboration with some of the world's best museums, Art Project contains thousands of high-resolution images of works, allowing people to view them in absolutely stunning detail. You can browse through museums using Google's Street View technology, or simply pick a work from a drop-down list of options given for each institution. For example, let's say you'd like to take a closer look at Officer and Laughing Girl by Johannes Vermeer, on display at The Frick Collection.
Starry Night, on display at The Museum of Modern Art.
