Google Art Project

Google have just launched their new Art Project – imagine Street View inside some of the world’s most famous art galleries.

It seemed a bit buggy when I first looked yesterday, but seems to be behaving itself a bit more today. You choose a gallery then click and drag to move around and zoom into anything that looks interesting. Some of the paintings have been photographed at incredibly high resolution so you can see far more detail than you’d be able to if you were actually there.

Well worth a look if you’re a) a fan of great artwork or b) interested in how much of the world is becoming virtual…
