Google’s Art Project

Google has set up a website where you can view 17 museums and paintings from around the world with rather stunning results. It’s called the Google Art Project and definitely worth a look. However, they don’t have images of every work in the collections, and unfortunately they missed the Levitans in the Tretyakov.


  1. Thank you for this information Marc. I am going to pass it on to people I know. It is a great idea. It lets us see the paintings and museums, but also gives us the incentive to try and go to those places to see the actual works. It is always such a revelation to see the real painting – the colours, the size and dimensions, textures.
