Google Art Project

If there is a company I would like to work for it would be Google..such innovators. The newest project they have come up with is called 'Google Art Project'. It allows one to view the artworks in various museums around the world from your desktop. Not only can you view the artworks but you can also take a virtual tour around the entire museum.

For artists like moi it allows us to zoom in on each painting to such a degree that I can analyze the colors used to paint the eye. Helps very much when studying value and brush strokes. Click here to read the article written by one of the innovators at Google and click here to get to the Google Art Project home page.

To give you an idea of the level of detail one can zoom into, see the pics below:
