Google Art Project

Google have been adapting their street-view technology to the art world. The Google Art Project is partnering with 17 international art galleries to allow online viewers to navigate their hallowed halls and to view their artwork in high resolution. Among the galleries are the MoMA New York, Tate Britain and The Palace of Versailles.

Van Gogh’s The Starry Night, Bellini’s St Francis in the Desert and Kupka’s The Cathedral are among the paintings that are presented in intricate detail. It feels as though you are in the room. Learn some more about how this fascinating project came together with this behind the scenes footage:
