Como ocupei parte do dia

Google has taken its 360-degree Street View cameras into some of the most famous and acclaimed galleries, to open the world’s art collection to the internet.

From the Tate Britain in London to the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Google Art Project lets you browse 385 rooms in 17 galleries, and see more than 1,000 works by 486 artists.

Each of the galleries has selected one piece of artwork to be photographed in staggeringly high resolution, with each of the 17 images containing around 7 billion pixels. Zoom in close enough, and you can see individual brushstrokes, hairline cracks in the canvas and microscopic details that are almost invisible to the naked eye — like tiny Latin messages scrawled on Hans Holbein the Younger’s The Merchant Georg Gisze, pictured above, in the Gemäldegalerie, Berlin.

  1. Em breve o meu museu estará online tambem. Daí andar muito ocupado.

  2. Uma preciosidade, religiosamente guardada nos favoritos, para ir ocupando grande parte de alguns dos meus dias.
