I’m sure that others have blogged about this before, but I’ve fallen in love with Collections – Google Art Project. Coming across this was purely accidental, I was looking for online art theory courses and one of the results included the Acropolis Museum. Never having been to Greece, it was exciting for me to be able to ‘wander’ around some of the Museum and see works that I might not have the chance to see otherwise.
Upon further exploration I found Monet’s Waterlilies at the Musee de l’Orangerie, Caravaggio’s Medusa at the Uffizi and the State Russian Museum in St Petersburg. There are 156 collections from museums and galleries all over the world, not all the works are included but you can get a feel for the artwork and the space they reside in, all from the comfort of your own home.
Enjoy! I know I will 🙂
