Google Art Project – what is it?
Explore museums from around the world, discover tens of thousands of artworks at incredible zoom levels, and even create your own galleries of masterpieces.
Google Art Project is really impressive. Many of the images are huge so you can see great detail. Check it out and come back often because it is still growing.
The Art Project showcases incredible artwork from collections around the world, including paintings, drawings, sculptures, historic and religious artifacts, photographs and important manuscripts. Expertly-narrated videos, audio guides, viewing notes, detailed information, maps and more tell the stories surrounding works included in the Project.
Museums large and small, classic and modern, world-renowned and community-based from over 40 countries have contributed more than 40,000 high-resolution images of works ranging from oil on canvas to sculpture and furniture. Some paintings are available in ‘gigapixel’ format, allowing you to zoom in at brushstroke level to examine incredible detail.
This is worth your time to check out!
