This is so exciting! The Google Art Project is a collaboration between Google and selected world famous museums and galleries that allows you to view pieces in crazy detail, as well as providing a ton of information. If you think about it, even if you aren’t seeing the piece in real life, you are seeing details that you might not be able to see when you can’t get so close to certain works in a museum. Great source when you can’t always hop on an airplane to Paris or London…and for students! It’s still a new-ish project, so hopefully the list will continue to groooow! Such a good idea. I love the interwebz.
