It's a New Art Thing

As you may already know, plug-ins and "apps" are all the rage these days. You can have them on your phone, on your tablet and on your browser.

One of my new favorites is The Google Art Project. Our "friends" at Google have started cataloging the world's great art museums, from the Hermitage in St. Petersburg to MoMA in New York, with high resolution photography and putting them all online. The site is available as a website or a plug-in for Google Chrome and other Chromium-based browser.

What makes it unique is the ability to zoom in and see the actual details and brush strokes. It is truly amazing.
