See Great Art Without Leaving Home

February 8, 2011

Armchair travelers will love Google’s new site where you can go to 17 museums around the world, click on artwork, and zoom in or out to get close-ups of brushstrokes, etc. The reviewer of this NYT article says the web site is still a work in progress, with glitches and not-so-good representations in some cases, but is mesmerizing.   She says she never noticed before the small group of women “skinny-dipping” in the background of Bruegel’s “Harvesters.”
